Discover 3 Reasons Why Silverfish Bugs Don’t Leave Your Home

If you have a silver bug infestation in your home, you may have already realized that not only do these insensitive little critters have despicable attitudes towards most items in your home, they are also nearly impossible to eradicate. Internet forums are full of horror stories of people struggling to get rid of these pests from their homes despite spending a good deal of money on pesticides. If you’re having the same difficulty and wondering why these bugs just can’t be defeated, here are three little things you might not know about these relentless bugs.

1) They know how to play the game.

Silver bugs are nocturnal creatures. They are also sharp, intelligent, and exceptionally quick at playing hide-and-seek. Trying to eliminate them with pesticides may produce modest results in the short term, but it will cost you a prodigious amount of money and precious time in the long run. It is humanly impossible to reach these insects in their designated living environments. They reside within walls, cracks, pipes, ceilings, basements, attics, between bookshelves, kitchen cabinets, closets, and any dark hidden spaces in your home.

More surprisingly, silver bugs are immune to almost all of the highly recommended pesticides that are widely available on the market. The few that can kill them are also dangerous to your health and that of other household pets such as cats, dogs, and fish. Over time, you may be able to kill a small percentage of silver bugs, but it’s unlikely you’ll get to the core and remove their eggs.

2) High humidity and temperature in your home is the number one reason why you will never leave your dream places.

Silver bugs prefer cool, moist environments with a humidity level between 75% and 95% and a temperature between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. As long as your home encompasses these deciding factors, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll ever find any method or product that permanently eliminates these bugs. Unless you address the causes of high humidity and road temperatures, these critters will continue to lay eggs, shed their skin, and destroy not only your precious objects, but also other household items that contain starches and polysaccharides.

3) Keeping your items safe will never starve them.

Although they have a great appetite for polysaccharide-containing elements, silver bugs can also survive without substance for more than a year. Hiding all the items that are high in carbohydrates, protein, and dextrin can stop these bugs from doing serious damage, but it won’t force them out of your home. In either case, they can feed on their own external skeletons and other dead insects as they continue to multiply. They may enjoy destroying your items, but these items are not one of the main defining factors of your existence.

One of the most effective methods I believe you can use is to find out WHAT is causing the high humidity level in your home and then act quickly to rectify these causes. But first you must understand its biological makeup.
