How do you get rid of silverfish? My daughter has had books in storage and the boxes contain silverfish. She is moving to a new house and wants to keep the books if possible - minus the silverfish.
Hi, I am a former librarian. We always checked out classroom book sets in plastic boxes because cardboard boxes are acidic and can expedite the yellowing and aging of the books as well as attract silverfish. Plastic boxes are better, or if that is too expensive, the previous poster recommended plastic bags that are sealed inside the cardboard box. The plastic would protect the books from dampness too.
