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.

Nothing gets the skin crawling quite like having a centipede infestation in your home or business. If you are being bothered by these unsightly insects, you need to turn to professionals that you can trust.

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.

    "Excellent service from High Country."

    We had been struggling with a bed bug issue that we inherited from the last slumlord apartment that we lived in. High Country came in, did a very thorough inspection, and applied really good product.

    "Can't go wrong"

    Service is always when they say it'll be, they didn't try to upsell to me when I first called over a year ago. Very reasonable when it comes to cost as well. If I could do it again with them for the first call I would.

    "5 Stars"

    We’ve been customers for over a year, due to an initial mouse problem. High Country eliminated this issue for us off the bat and has through maintenance thereafter kept our home pest-free. Their technicians are prompt, polite, and professional.

    "Jeremy is awesome."

    Remembered me from last year. If I had continued with monthly service I wouldn't be terrorized by a full on mouse invasion. Highly recommend their services.
