How To Use Cinnamon To Ward Off Pesky Silverfish
If silverfish have already nested in your home, you'll need to take more extreme measures. However, as a preventative measure, cinnamon is a cheap, effective, and organic option.
To do so, simply sprinkle ground cinnamon around your home. If you don't want cinnamon everywhere, you can use cinnamon essential oil to spread the scent instead.
You can also dab cinnamon oil into dark corners where silverfish typically hide using a cotton swab, Q-tip, makeup round, or even a paper towel.
Alternatively, mix cinnamon oil with your cleaning agent and apply it to silverfish-prone areas. You'll spread that cinnamon aroma while ridding your home of mold and mildew.
