    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.
