See How Our Silverfish Treatment Works
First, a Fantastic exterminator inspects your property. The goal is to determine the type and level of infestation, and to suggest an effective treatment method.
For small and mild infestations, spraying with commercial-grade insecticide is enough. For severe infestation, heat treatment is needed. Same-day treatments are possible.
If you've booked a full treatment, you can request two free follow-up visits. The exterminator can come back to inspect and treat the property again if there's a need.
When the silverfish are fully eradicated, the technician will give you a written report about the treatment. You will also receive some useful tips for protecting your home.
