Silverfish, Earwigs & Spiders


Silverfish are silvery-grey in colour and adults are around 12mm in length. They are often found in damp, dark places, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Silverfish are generally active after dark. Although in severe cases day time sighting are common. Silverfish lay their eggs in small nooks and crannies making them extremely difficult to access, hence the need for specialist treatment. Signs of an infestation maybe that you have found silverfish in your washbasin or kitchen sink as they cannot climb smooth surfaces very well and often become stuck.


Earwigs are long thin insects, brown in colour and adults grow to 12mm-14mm. earwigs enter our home via plants and open windows and often in large numbers causing distress.


Spiders become a pest when they enter the home as they can cause distress. The common spiders found through UK homes are:

  • Common house spider
  • Cellar spider
  • Wolf spider
  • Sac spider

Spider infestations can become overwhelming and difficult to contain then professional services may be necessary.
