We have just discovered silverfish in our tatami mat room. I was wondering if anyone had any experience on get rid of them here in Japan. We have been seedling for stuff but nothing has come up. Thank you.
You can buy an insect spray that comes with a needle that you can insert into the tatami mat. I forgot which one we used but they have a lot of it in stores. They didn't get away quickly but they did after several days of spraying. :)0
Eek! I don't have any personal experience with them, but I remember reading that roach traps work on silverfish too. Good luck!0
I found some spray from amazon before that seemed to have done the job. http://amzn.asia/d/3mV69Fj Give it a try, good luck!!0
Yes correct, i agree with irriizzzzz..... comment, you can get the insect spray that can be inserted into the tatami mat in the stores.0
While they may seem to be a nuisance, silverfish eat literally every other insect they find. Spiders, cockroaches, ants, they eat them all. I wouldn't be so quick to get rid of them using chemicals. If there are a lot of them, it means they have a large food supply. Getting rid of the silverfish may cause you to begin to have other pest problems.0
