Do You Have A Firebrat Infestation Problem In Your NY, NJ or CT Property?


1/2″ long and wingless with grayish scales on its back. Closely related to a silverfish, with a cone-shaped body and two antennae.


They are found in high moisture areas, with temperatures over 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Boiler rooms, attics and around ovens are common areas. They feed on carbohydrates and proteins.

How do they affect me?

They can be found eating a range of foods and are a nuisance pest. They are not known to carry diseases.

What should I do?

Controlling your heat would be the best way to prevent these pests. Otherwise, the only control would be for professional treatments. Firebrats are covered under our Home Pest Prevention program.
