A Four-Stage Procedure

At Tom’s Pest Control, we do not only treat for the silverfish infestation at your property but address the factors that led to the infestation as well. We have a four-stage procedure to make the properties of our customers pest-free.

Silverfish Inspection

Our experienced pest technicians will come to your property and inspect every inch, including basement, crawlspace, attic, and more. We will identify the level of pest infestation, the damage created by the pest at your property, the hiding places of the pest, and more.

The inspection will also help us to confirm the factors at your property that encouraged the pest to live in your environment. We will submit a detailed inspection report to you with details of the extent of the infestation, photographs of infestation and damage, the recommended treatment procedures, and more.

Pest Control Plan

We will inspect your property to check for the type of pest infestation. Based on our findings, we will design a customised silverfish control plan. The plan will include details on the treatment procedure, duration, result expected and after-care instructions for the inhabitants.

It will also have details of ongoing prevention strategies to prevent future infestation. We will update the treatment plan and ensure that you are happy with the expected outcome before beginning the procedure. 

The Pest Control

Our technicians will carry out the treatments, as mentioned in the treatment plan. Depending on the infestation level, we will use various treatment procedures and multiple rounds of treatments to get the best results. The treatment may often include insecticides, fogging, aerosol sprays, traps, and natural repellents.

Regardless of the treatment procedures, we use only approved, family-friendly, and safe treatment procedures. At Tom’s Pest Control, we are focused on creating a healthy environment at the properties of our customers through our treatment services. 

Ongoing Control

It isn’t possible to eliminate the chances of future pest attacks on your property with just our treatment. We advise you specific ongoing control tips and strategies based on our inspection to minimise future infestation risks.Some common ongoing control tips that can work for every property are the following:
  • Keep your food products, including flour, cereals, sugar, and more in air-tight containers.
  • Check your property for any water sources that cause dampness and close or repair them. Open fish tank, plumbing leak, water-shedding near the property, and more can increase the humidity and attract the pest to your property.
  • Clear any form of clutter from your property as silverfish often finds safe hiding places behind piles of debris, clothes, and papers.
  • Clean and sanitise your floors and walls and remove and dispose of different types of garbage from your property on a regular basis.
If your property has high humidity, you can consider installing a dehumidifier to minimise the dampness.
