Hi John,

For the first time since being in our current house (approx. 10 years), we've seen a few silverfish in or close to the two bathrooms. I'm wondering if either of the following would help control them:

1) Diatomaceous earth - sprinkling under/around baseboards, cabinets, etc. where they've been seen?

2) Boric acid - had great success with this in the past against an ant invasion (mixed with water & sugar). Would this be effective against silverfish? Would bait mixture like the above be used, or just sprinkling it around the baseboards/cabinets?

Your comments on the above, and any other suggestions you might have, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff
