What are Centipedes?

House Centipedes are 15 legged predatory bugs known for killing and eating other arthropods. These bugs are typically between 3 and 4 inches long, with their long legs allowing them to run extremely fast. Laying their eggs in the spring, they can quickly get into your house when the weather warms up!

Seen one too many House Centipedes lately?​

House Centipedes prefer to live in outside areas such as firewood piles, under rocks, mulch and leaves. However, they are always looking for a new place to find their prey. This means they may find their way into your home as they realize it is a new hunting ground!

At Certified Pest Control we have a dedicated approach to controlling House Centipedes safely, quickly, and efficiently. Our highly trained technicians first identify the types of centipedes you have in your home and where they originate. We then utilize a professional control method that will eliminate the centipedes, and keep them out for good. This is done using a number of methods, such as spraying, using a granular pesticide, and for the more extreme cases fogging.
