    Hopefully I'm not repeating a previously asked question (had a quick look), but does anyone know of any natural remedies for repelling silver fish?

    You are right Danjo - lavender to repel silverfish (and moths). :D

    Apparently bay leaves are a great detterant. If you are lucky enough to have a bay tree or abe able to get branches (like me from my parents), put small lengths with leaves still attached everywhere you can. Not sure how long the volatile oils would be potent for though.

    cheers,

    I think cloves work as well.... Hence the old clove stuffed oranges.
