    Default Silver Fish

    Anyone know how to get rid of them? We have managed to cut down on them by vacumming every day and vacumming about 10 feet of carpet outisde our door (we live in an apt) but we still get the odd one (maybe about 5 a week)....anyone know of anything (natural preferred?)

    I've downsized to a sweet little yellow brick home in Old East. My backyard is a haven for birds :)

    We've used boric acid to rid the house of fleas (the vet recommended it). It's a safe product with lots of uses and should work on silverfish. Here's a link with more info.

    Nor for itself hath any care,
    But for another gives its ease,

    I remember growing up in a house that had them. Don't recall my parents ever doing anything, but then I was just a kid.
