Centipedes

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Centipedes Dangerous?

Centipedes are generally considered low-risk pests and are not dangerous to humans. Although some larger species can bite, their venom is not harmful to humans unless a person has an allergic reaction. Centipedes are beneficial creatures as they help control insect populations. However, their presence in large numbers can be unsettling and may indicate other pest problems in a home.

Why do I have a Centipede problem?

Centipedes are attracted to properties that offer them shelter, moisture, and a plentiful food supply. They may enter homes and buildings in search of warmth, moisture, and food sources such as insects and spiders. Overgrown vegetation, cluttered outdoor spaces, and improperly sealed doors or windows can attract centipedes to your property.

Where will I find Centipedes?

Centipedes can be found both indoors and outdoors. Outside, they may be found in damp, dark areas such as under rocks, leaf litter, or woodpiles. Inside, they may be found in dark, moist areas like basements, bathrooms, and crawl spaces. They are most active at night and are more likely to be encountered during the evening hours.

How do I get rid of Centipedes?

To get rid of centipedes, first identify the areas where they are congregating. Implement proper sanitation practices, reduce clutter, and eliminate moisture issues in and around your home. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows to prevent centipedes from entering. Use insecticides or sticky traps as needed. For persistent infestations, consider hiring a professional pest control service.

How can I prevent Centipedes?

Preventing centipedes involves maintaining a clean and clutter-free property, addressing moisture issues, and sealing any entry points. Regularly clean both inside and outside your home, paying special attention to potential hiding spots. Repair any water leaks, control humidity levels, and seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows.

What are Centipedes

Centipedes are elongated, many-legged arthropods belonging to the class Chilopoda. They have flat, segmented bodies with one pair of legs per body segment. Centipedes can vary in size and color, but most are brown or reddish-brown. They are nocturnal predators, feeding on insects, spiders, and other small arthropods. Centipedes are fast-moving creatures with venomous front legs, called forcipules, used for capturing and paralyzing their prey.
