This self contained, eco-friendly Silverfish and Greyfish trap comes as 2 individual self contained stations. The inner surfaces have a glue coating, that is both non-toxic and environmentally safe.
The Silverfish Stations are ideal for use in areas which Sliverfish are present , such as pantries, bathrooms, cupboards etc. They can be used both inside and out as well as in private or public spaces.
The glue that is used in the trap is non-drying, meaning it will be effective for many weeks, until the full surface is covered with the target pest. We recommend using several stations in problematic areas.

How to Get Rid of Silverfish In Your Home?
Silverfish are often found in the home, some of their favourite places being food cupboards, bathrooms, kitchens and anywhere that is generally dark & damp. Whilst these insects do not cause an immediate threat to us, they cause thousands of pounds worth of damage every year. They do this by eating the sugars & starches of not only food such as cereal, but our household items such as books, carpets, clothes, bedding, wallpaper and plaster. If a silverfish problem is left to become an infestation, you may start to see the signs of the damage they cause; such as holes in books, clothing, carpet thinning and damage to walls.
The best way of approaching a silverfish problem is to monitor with traps, then treat problem areas with repellents, after cleaning. This simple, cost effective approach can save your favourite possessions from being damaged beyond repair.
How To Trap Silverfish?
Silverfish & Crawling Insect monitoring traps should be placed in likely areas, such as bathrooms, kitchens, pantries and cupboards. The non-toxic trap should be checked at least twice a week.
What can I use as a lure?
Silverfish are attracted to starch & Sugars, we recommend placing a single piece of cereal, such as a shredded wheat flake.
What can I use as a natural deterrent against Silverfish?
Cedar Shavings – These natural wood chips are excellent for keeping pests away. They hate the smell of them and will go to great lengths to avoid them.
Diatomaceous Earth – Diatomaceous Earth is a natural powder, made up of silica. This is incredibly sharp and can manage a silverfish population when dusted in high traffic silverfish areas. It is best to hoover up the next day, should you have any silverfish present.
Essential Oils – Silverfish, along with most insects, hate the smell of oils such as cedar, citrus and lavender. These can be diluted with water, in a suitable spray bottle; then used to mist areas where Silverfish are likely to be attracted to, such as kitchens, bathrooms and windowsill edges/cracks.
