Silverfish aren’t harmful to humans, but they are harmful to your belongings. Silverfish will find warm, damp spaces inside your Virginia Beach home such as basements and crawl spaces. Once inside they will eat starchy materials such as grains, fibers and fabrics. They will eat stored cereal, the glue from book bindings, silk and other textiles. Silverfish get their name from their shiny silver color, and can be identified by the 3 prong antennae on their backside. Once in a home, silverfish can be hard to get rid of and they can multiply quickly. If you have a silverfish infestation in your Virginia Beach home, call an exterminator. Fox Pest Control is here to help eliminate silverfish in your home.
You might already know you have a silverfish infestation, but here are a couple of the most common signs silverfish exterminators look for in Virginia Beach.
You want to get rid of silverfish because they can come into your home through openings around windows, cracks and crevices in your foundation, or they can even fall out of light fixtures when they infiltrate attics or roofs.
You’ll know you have a silverfish infestation when you start to see chewed on books, wooden chess sets, wallpaper, or natural fibers in clothing like cotton. These can appear as holes, wormlike trails, or chewing marks.

Silverfish are extremely difficult to remove without professional help because they are capable of eating virtually everything. Vacuuming can help scare them out of the open and back into hiding, but ultimately, you’ll want a silverfish extermination solution that can help you feel safe and comfortable in your own home. Call Fox Pest Control today to reclaim your home from these pests.
Most likely, the silverfish came from the soil around your house. Maybe the soil near the house dried out, so they made their way toward a wet spot inside the home to keep from drying out.
You want to get rid of silverfish because although silverfish don’t bite, they can contaminate your food, and they can certainly be a big nuisance. Once they get inside your Virginia Beach house, they can eat the walls, an old chess set, or even the carpet.
Silverfish are wingless insects with six legs, two antennae, and three antennae-like structures on their abdomen that look like three tails.
Silverfish treatment is important because they can eat almost anything. This destructive ability is one of the things that make this bug a pest for Virginia Beach homeowners.
Silverfish can eat “people food” as well as wallpaper, books, wall studs, and anything made of cotton or natural fabrics
Actually, yes, they are — when they aren’t eating your books, clothes, or walls. These little silvery guys are like the garbage cleanup crew of the world. Since they can eat living or decaying material, they help clean up rotting things, from a dead animal to a fallen tree.
Silverfish get their name from having a silvery coating on their scale-like exoskeleton. They also have a quick, fishlike wiggle in the way they move.
Silverfish have a silvery coating on their scale-like exoskeleton, but they aren’t actually silver, and they’re not related to fish at all.
These guys are awesome - especially Alonzo. Automated phone call a couple of days before service call as a reminder. When Alonzo got to our house, he gave us a quick run down of what he was going to do and look for. Then when he was done he gave us an overview of how everything looked. We have had two treatments and have seen a significant reduction in the number ants, silverfish, and cockroaches. Highly recommend
We had Fox at our old home and were thrilled to see their truck at a neighbor's house in our new neighborhood. We signed up again and have been happy with them just as before. If we see any bug between treatments (ants, silverfish, spiders, etc.) they quickly come out and treat those concerns for free. We always have the same person come by so he knows our home and family (safe products with babies crawling around). Highly recommend.
Your technician Erin was wonderful, she was very informed about her job, courteous, and so great. The entire experience was very pleasantly. I really appreciate the fact that she was so kind with our dogs. As they are like our children. She deserves to get all the credit for an amazing experience.
I was pleasantly surprised with the service provided by Fox. I had never heard of them until a friendly representative made a door to door stop. Initially, I was hesitant but after seeing all the amazing reviews I signed up and I don't regret it. They scheduled an appointment for the very next day and showed up promptly at the scheduled time. Unfortunately, I can't remember the young mans name but he was attentive to all of our concerns and had a lovely disposition. The very next day we were able to see results and are looking forward to our next service visit.
The other day was my first experience with Fox Pest Control. A gentleman named Tanner explained the services to me and I thought it was a great value. My Pest Pro was Alan. He provided quick, but thorough service and also explained what he was doing in a very professional manner. So far, I'm impressed with this company.
JHOQUON was awesome!! Did a great job and was very nice and professional!!!
