Two questions: I recently bought a house in the SDSU area and need to know how to control/remove silverfish that threaten my library! I don't know what impact having a professional pest control company spread whatever dust they use would have on butterflies and birds, but I'm guessing it wouldn't be good.  
Second: I have a lawn in front (not watering it so it looks terrible) and a patch of dirt in back i would love to transform into a place for butterflies and birds. Where to start?

Hi Viola,  
UC IPM has some great information on silverfish management, here: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7475.html.  
Regarding creating a pollinator habitat the UC Master Gardener Program in San Diego would be a great resource to help get you started. Here is the website: http://ucanr.edu/sites/sdmastergardeners/.  
Happy gardening!  
Melissa
