Get Rid Of Silverfish With Cucumbers

Here is another way to get rid of silverfish in your home. It seems that silverfish don’t like cucumbers at all.

So get you a cucumber, and cut it up into 1/8″ thick strips. Well, it doesn’t have to be perfectly 1/8″ but the point I am making is don’t just make very thin strips.

Lay the strips along with places where you have seen the silverfish. Under the counter, under the sink and so on.


If the cucumber dries up, just replace it with another strip until you don’t see any more silverfish.

People in areas of the country that have a bad infestation of silverfish often throw cucumber peels around their homes and in the crawl space if they have one. This is not only a good way to get rid of silverfish but keep them from ever entering the home at all.

While ants don’t eat cucumbers, do keep an eye out for them. You should not have any problem at all, but be sure that at the first sign of ants, you remove the cucumbers and try a different method. If you look to the right you will see many different methods to get rid of silverfish once and for all in your home.

The main thing to remember is not only should you use these methods to get rid of silverfish, but you also need to be sure you prep your home to keep them out. Things link no moisture, dusting often; don’t leave papers or books lying around for long periods of time without moving them around or opening them. If you are going to store papers or books, put them in a sealed plastic bag of some sort to keep the silverfish out. Remember silverfish love glue and there is plenty of glue in books and paper.

So be sure to stay proactive to not only get rid of silverfish but to keep them out forever. For more info, contact with a professional Perth pest control company.
