Insects do not like the smell of Citronella Oil which you can burn in an oil burner, Silverfish hate the smell of Cinnamon oil - just sprinkle the oil near the crevices that they crawl out of.

Sprinkle diatomaceous earth if it gets wet you'll have to do it again

I have heard that if you keep a basil plant in your kitchen it will repel flies. Thanks for reminding me, I am going to repot some of my basil this weekend, and bring it into the kitchen window to see how it works.
