Centipede Identification & Prevention

What are centipedes?

Centipedes are usually brownish, flattened, and elongated insects that have many body segments. One pair of legs is attached to most of these body segments. They range in length from one to six inches and can run at a rapid speed.

Are centipedes dangerous?

They can infest homes, and homeowners do not desire this. Centipedes are both unsightly and a nuisance indoors. Centipedes do have venom glands and they may bite. Their bites are usually not serious; however, an antiseptic should be used on the wound, and you should consult a physician if the skin is punctured.

How do I get rid of centipedes?

A professional home pest control treatment is the best way to reduce centipedes in a given area. High Country Pest Control offers a professional treatment for the reduction of centipedes. Our pest control technicians are thoroughly trained to address your centipede problems. Don’t waste time and money on over-the-counter remedies or unprofessional service.

How can I prevent centipedes in the future?

Indoors, a large infestation is often associated with moisture, such as around a leaky pipe. These conditions should be corrected as soon as possible to limit future centipede infestations. Outdoors, potential harborages should be removed, such as boards, grass clippings, boxes, etc. A professional pest control perimeter treatment will help to reduce centipede numbers.
