What Are Centipedes?
Centipedes are often called house centipedes. Their name means 100 legs, but they can have anywhere from 15 to 177 pairs of legs. They move at a fast speed and are known for their nocturnal nature. The long and slender pests can live up to six years.
Signs of a Centipede Infestation
Centipedes are sneaky creatures that don’t typically show any signs of an infestation. Many homeowners only know they have a centipede infestation if you see them. Centipedes hide in secluded and dark areas. They put their eggs in damp soil in the spring or summer. You will usually only see them during the night in your home as they hide in the dampest areas.
Do Centipedes Bite?
While centipedes are venomous, they will not typically bite a human. House centipedes have weak jaws that don’t usually let them break the skin. They eat soft-bodied insects like worms and spiders.
How to Get Rid of Centipedes
It’s difficult to eliminate centipede infestations because finding the pests is challenging. The best ways to help prevent centipede problems inside your home include the following:
- Reduce Moisture – Centipedes thrive in high-humidity environments, so it’s essential to reduce the moisture in your air as much as possible.
- Eliminate Other insects – Since centipedes feast on spiders and insects, it’s best to control them with professional pest control.
