They like the high humidity, that's why you see them in or near bathrooms. Make sure the BRs air out, always leave the doors open after your showers.

As far as treatment is concerned, not sure either of those will help much. Either of those work, but the problem is getting it to where they hide. Cracks, crevices, and they usually stay "high" where the moisture is.

Don't put off calling a Pro if they don't. Silverfish can be a hard slog even for the pros, if they get a head start. If you call the pros, you're probably better off calling a trusted local guy, skip the biggies and the fancy contracts. Look for someone you can call on an 'as needed' basis.
