Details

Dekko silverfish bait packs are an economic and easy way to control silverfish. Silverfish simply eat through the pack and ingest the poision inside. Place two to three packs in each infested area you are trying to control. Silverfish may take several days to a few weeks to control, depending on conditions. Pack of 24.

Place in closets, drawers, bookcases, basements, garages and other dark hidden places. Each pack lasts up to 4 months.

* Silverfish eat paper and glue with great gusto! Dekko Silverfish Paks attacks them by infusing the boric acid, paper pack and glue with an attractant that is irresistible to the critters and kills them quickly once consumed. Unlike powders, Dekko Silverfish Paks are clean, won’t leave residue on your hands, or in locations where they are placed. In the case of severe infestation, complete control may take from 3 days to 4 weeks depending upon conditions.

* Don’t open or crush individual packages. Silverfish show up most often in dark, dry areas. Place 2 or 3 packs in each infested area or location where silverfish might show up. In addition to drawers, closets, bookcases, basements and garages, use these packs in the attic and under the house. They will solve your silverfish problems quickly. If you don’t have the critters – and most folks do but don’t know it until the numbers get really large – Dekko Silverfish Paks will insure you don’t get the problem. An ounce or 2 of prevention is worth many pounds of aggravation.

    They really work!

    By Gloria on 01/28/2007

    This was my second order for the Dekko Silverfish Packs. I remember many years ago having them and came upon an old packet (very old) and found the name of the company on it and the rest is history. I didn't get enough the first time so I got a bigger package this time. They really work. Thanks for the fast delivery.

    Did not work for me

    By Jennie on 08/02/2008

    I found that the silverfish were breeding in the packs. The package says good for 3 months since date of packaging. Since there is no way to know when the package was made, it seems possible the ones I got had already deteriorated on the shelf. In any event, this is not the way to get rid of an infestation.

    Expert ResponseExpert response:
    These paks do not have an expiration date and do not deteriorate. The product label says to replace the paks every 3 - 4 months from date of purchase.

    Works great!

    By Sj on 06/18/2007

    Thanks for the tips on my previous order a while back - these Dekko Silverfish Packs work great and the granular bait worked great!  We are doing some remodeling and found lots of bug carcasses - the basement is not nearly as scary a place anymore. Thanks again.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
What is the shelf life of the Dekko Silverfish Packs?

I've seen that the packs usually last 4 months once laid out but I recently found a box of packs in a closet. I'm not sure how long they have been in there, maybe up to 4 years. Would these baits still be good? Thanks!
A
According to the manufacturer, as long as they stay dry, Dekko Silverfish paks will remain effective indefinitely.

Q
Will silverfish eat drywall paper and tape?

I have one wall in the bedroom between a corner and a window that the tape joints have deteriorated and when I chipped at them with my finger a silverfish came out. What happens to the silverfish after they eat the Dekko Silverfish pack?
A
Silverfish are known to eat the adhesive that is used on tape and on the drywall paper. The Dekko Silverfish Packs are formulated with the active ingredient boric acid. While Dekko is safe to use around people and pets, it is deadly to insects and soon after the silverfish ingest the boric acid they will die.

Q
My dog chewed on a Dekko Silverfish Pack, what should i do?
A

Any time a pet eats any type of insecticide you should contact your veterinarian. Be sure to have the product label ready as the veterinarian will need to know what ingredients were ingested by your pet. We always have all of the product labels available on our site for your convenience. Boric Acid, the active ingredient in the Dekko silverfish paks,  has a low acute toxicity. Small amounts e.g., a teaspoon) swallowed accidentally are not likely to cause effects but you should still check with your vet.

Q
How long before we should dispose of old silverfish packets?

How do i know when i need to throw out old packets? Will the packet look eaten through and is that when they should be thrown out?
A
Dekko Silverfish packs are good for one year from the date of purchase in the box.  When you take the packs out of the box to use in your home, they are good for 3 to 4 months.  They should be replaced every 3 to 4 months whether they looked used or not.

Q
Is it safe to place Dekko Silverfish Packs in air vents?
A
We would not suggest placing Dekko Silverfish Packs inside air vents.  It is not permissible on the product label to place the packs in vents, but normally that would not be a hiding place for silverfish anyways.  Normal harborage areas for silverfish are closets, drawers, bookcases, basements, garages and other dark hidden places.
