General Info
  • Slaters are slow moving and are most active at night
  • One type of slater is often referred to as a “pill bug” (however, not all slaters curl up into a ball when disturbed)
Where They Hide
  • Slaters frequent areas with lots of moisture (under garbage, rocks, skirting boards, decay, or just beneath the soil surface)
  • Mulches, grass clippings, and leaf litter often provide the decaying organic matter they love to eat and hide in
What They Want From You
  • The slaters’ normal habitat is outdoors, but they occasionally wander inside looking for moisture or a better place to hide
Why They’re A Problem
  • Slaters will not damage the home or transmit disease so they are mostly viewed as a nuisance
Tips For Limiting Entry and Avoiding Future Problems

Follow these sanitation tips for effective silverfish control:

  • Keep compost piles and decaying vegetation away from the house
  • Caulk and seal windows and exterior doors to keep slaters from entering
