    Third, Diatomaceous Earth will kill silverfish as well as other insects and even spiders. This white powder will essentially dehydrate the pests. You can sprinkle this around the home where the silverfish might be as well as use it in your garden. This is definitely a method of exterminating as opposed to repelling the silverfish.
    DE is the best. Not only can insects not develop resistance to it, it's safe for you and your pets. You do have to be very careful applying it, because of the risk of inhaling it. When I had dogs, I developed a horrible tick infestation which was broken within one week of using DE. If you live in the south, you will always have cockroach control issues, and it nukes them as well.

    Spiders are unfortunately collateral damage, but I rarely had any in the house.

    I have a horrible experience with a dead rat

    There's an opening to go to the attic on our bathroom ceiling... One day we smelled a horrible smell from the bathroom. We searched all over the place, the attic, everywhere for the source of the smell... couldn't find anything. A couple of days later, I went to the bathroom (around 2 am) and saw something dropping from the ceiling. Put on my glasses and found maggots raining from the ceiling opening They were the size of my small finger Somebody missed a dead rat in the corner of the attic

    A couple of days later, the bathroom was full of giant flies

    I much prefer the rats than the maggots and flies
