Silverfish & Firebrats

Control Strategy

Baiting and dusts are the best methods for controlling silverfish. Use Maggie’s Farm Roach Killer Gel Bait yes, Roach Killer bait. It is a highly effective and versatile gel bait in a tube, and can be used to kill cockroaches, most common ants, silverfish and firebrats. Just follow the directions on the product label! It’s as easy as applying pea-sized spots of the gel bait where silverfish or firebrats have been seen, such as bathrooms, kitchens, around bookcases, peeling wallpaper, etc. You should also apply it to cracks between your living space and the attic (e.g., around light fixtures). Basements are also a prime area to treat since they tend to have higher humidity, making them a preferred area for many bugs, including silverfish/firebrats.

Maggie’s Farm Spider & Insect Dust or Maggie’s Farm Bed Bug Killer dust are other effective options for eliminating these bugs and for long term control. You should apply the dust in attics, basements, utility closets, behind and along baseboards, underneath and behind appliances, inside wall voids, in drawer wells (space under the bottom drawer of cupboards), under cabinets, sinks, and tubs, and in other cracks and crevices where these bugs have been seen. Read the label directions for additional information.
