Silverfish or bristletails get their common name from the three bristle like appendages on the rear of their body. Their teardrop shaped body is covered with silver scales and measures 1/2 to 3/4 inches in length. They will frequent any room in the house. They prefer to feed on paper or wallpaper with their chewing mouthparts and they may live up to a year without food, but require humidity to survive.
Silverfish are medically harmless, but are a nuisance pest inside structures and may contaminate food, damage paper goods and stain clothing.
Silverfish may be difficult to control and that's why our service includes the necessary products and follow up visits for one fee. Our treatment methods consist of the following:
Initial Service - Detailed inspection of the interior and exterior of your home, then a targeted treatment of all areas where activity is present. Each Initial Service includes the application of seven exclusive Pest Guard steps, designed to rid your home of unwanted pests and keep them away.
Follow Up - Quarterly interior/exterior or exterior-only services will be scheduled as part of our annual Integrated Pest Management program. All Schendel Premium Care customers enjoy the benefit of our PestZero Guarantee. If pests return in between visits, Schendel returns for free.
Due to the complexity of treatment and the time required, silverfish are generally not a pest many people have success in eradicating. Beware when purchasing pesticides and other products online as many are not effective. Pesticides can be harmful to people and pets if they are misused or mixed improperly.
Schendel is 100% committed to helping you ASAP. In most cases, we can respond the same or very next day.
Schendel uses the least amount of material as possible while still resolving the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as a form of treatment as much as possible. When conventional materials are required, we follow very stringent guidelines for the use of the product so that it poses no threat to people, pets or plants. All products are found to be effective and registered by the EPA and our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken.
We have standard pricing for all of our pest services, based on average size homes under 3500 square feet and where the infestation does not require more than the standard number of services. We will always make you aware of any price changes before we start your service. Sign up for your FREE quote today and see how much you can save with Schendel.
Schendel offers customers an exclusive PestZero Warranty. We will target the source and eliminate your pest problem. If pests return, Schendel returns for free. Guaranteed.

"Our technician always calls first to confirm that it is convenient for him to provide services. The technicians are always pleasant, polite and anxious to do a good job for us. They take as much time as necessary to do the job. Over the years we have done business with you, our spider problem has decreased significantly. I understand in our rural location, this will always be a problem to a certain extent but it is certainly much improved. "
