Stop Silverfish from Invading Your Home in Arizona


Silverfish are nocturnal. Additionally, they can move and jump quickly.

In Arizona, silverfish can do excessive damage to paper products including files, books, etc. They feed on starch, glue, paste, and paper products of all kinds. In fact, they even feed on starched clothing and textiles.

They are a very common pest in Arizona and are often a food of choice for predatory pests such as scorpions and spiders.

Appearance and Life Cycle

Silverfish normally range from 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length. They are similar to a carrot in shape. Their color varies from grayish-silver to light tan. People often say they are somewhat prehistoric looking creatures.

Silverfish have a 2–3 month reproductive cycle that produces about 50 eggs. Silverfish have a lifespan of 2 to 2.5 years.


A residual treatment on a consistent pest control service plan is the key to keep silverfish population under control. Because they are a food source for spiders and scorpions, having consistent control is critical in your overall pest management strategy.

Evergreen’s office staff deserves 5 stars. They are always pleasant and polite. We have used Evergreen for quite some time and never had any pest problems. Only once did I see some tiny bugs on a window sill so I called Evergreen. The sent someone out within an hour’s time! Frank not only took care of the problem, he also checked the surrounding areas of the room at no charge!

I had such a bad fly problem in my backyard! I have tried every home remedy that I could think of and nothing seemed to get these annoying pests. I did some research and called Evergreen Pest & Termite they had such good ratings I thought why not give them a try. I got on the phone with a lady named Tammy and she was so great she had me scheduled in a blink of an eye and determined the most affordable yet effective treatment option. The pest tech Zack came to treat my yard and he really went above and beyond! My treatment did come with a warranty and just to give those flies the extra boot I decided to take full advantage. Tammy knew who I was right away and exactly what my problem was before even pulling up my name in her system. That made me feel so special. Thank you for the VIP treatment. You deserve 6 stars! ******
