Silverfish cause?

We have recently moved into a completely renovated house. And they can be found on every floor, in every room. There are hygrometers everywhere that show 30-50% humidity at 19-22 degrees day/night. Windows are open almost 24/7. Have underfloor heating and oil heating in the basement. However, I most often find them at the front door or living room at night. Traps were also set. But it doesn't really seem to stop it. Are there any tips on what else you can do against them?



------------------------

Silverfish are ALWAYS a problem in the house.

They are NEVER a problem for the residents! (as long as you follow normal hygiene rules)

I speak from my own experience!

We moved into a new building that was only 3 years old. And ALL 6 house parties had silverfish! And everywhere! From the basement to the attic! Exterminators were powerless. As it turned out, the house was a huge messelquelle. Insulation defects, unsealed supply shafts, etc. made it easy for the beasts to migrate from one apartment to the next.

After our books and records became unusable and when we turned over a calendar in the kitchen, up to 10 silverfish fell on the floor, and there were dead silverfish in drinking glasses and cups, we moved.

In a 100 year old house with an old damp potato cellar

With cobblestone floor in the cellar! Everything was left on the floor and immediately started to mold and become damp. And? Although we certainly brought enough eggs and silverfish with us in our moving boxes, in 10 years there we had only had a maximum of 3 silverfish (in the bathroom)!

We never had any problems with silverfish again in the following apartments and now in our own single-family home.



------------------------

As far as I remember, silverfish like to appear whereverCellulose occurs in some form. This is the case with wallpaper, wallpaper paste, wooden floors, etc. the case.

The little fish are nocturnal and immediately dart into their hiding place when there is light.

They can cause a lot of damage: they seem to like wool, especially cashmere wool, and silk very well. Paper works too.

I don't know how to get it under control anymore. Here in the apartment I think there is... no silverfish.



------------------------

The little pests like 3 things

Moisture, heat-carbohydrate-rich food, also paste (cellulose), of which there are still enough traces due to the core renovation.

Incidentally, I have to promote a little bit of reverence for these harmless beasts have been populating our earth almost unchanged for at least 340 million years (humans have only been there for a 100th of that time!).



------------------------

Wow!



------------------------

Corely renovated. No paste though, as no wallpaper.



------------------------

I recommend feeding them with stevia. This tastes very sweet to them so they can't resist. But they starve to death. Stevia is completely non-toxic to humans.
