How to get rid of silverfish

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Anyone know how to get rid of silverfish? I live in the deep south "Louisiana" and please don't say to make sure everything is always dry. :) Our humidity is always very high.  Where I live I am surrounded by lakes and swamps. Thanks for any help!!!

I hate those things.  I kill them with dish soap mix with hot water  works perfect.  I had a few big nests in the yard a few years ago they like bushes and plants  they got into my basement.  one night I went down there and turn on the light there was like 70 climbing on the wall. it freaked me out.

might try a little DE.    We have a few running around here but not an overwhelming amount.  Those don't usually bother me.  Its roaches that I can't stand....   

 

I laughed about the humidity thing.  I lived in Louisiana for awhile and it brought back memories.
