Salt Is All You Need To Solve Your Silverfish Problem
While non-toxic to humans and pets, silverfish can
be a nuisance as they contaminate food items and destroy items like books, wallpapers, and carpets. To remove them, use salt.
Silverfish cannot resist salt, which is a drying agent. When they consume salt, their bodies' water content is absorbed, and they are left dehydrated, leading
to their death.
Moreover, salt's drying property also dehumidifies damp environments in bathrooms or under kitchen sinks, which are the primary breeding grounds of silverfish.
Spread a thin layer of salt on the areas prone to silverfish infestation, including cracks and crevices, cupboards, drawers, and under furniture, or apply it directly to the bugs.
