Centipedes And Millipedes Protecting What Matters

Centipedes and Millipedes

The name centipede means “100 legs,” can be somewhat misleading: centipedes are common household pests that may have anywhere from 15 to 191 pairs of legs. They have elongated, with flat, segmented bodies that contain a pair of legs for all but one segment. Adult centipedes are brown and measure over one inch in length. They can live for several years. Millipedes tend to be much smaller, between 2 and 4 centimeters with brown segmented bodies and less visible legs.

Centipedes and millipedes are nocturnal, and therefore large populations can flourish indoors while avoiding notice. Certain centipedes can bite humans; there bites while not dangerous can be painful. Millipedes prefer to live outside, but do occasionally enter homes and typically inhabit basements, storage boxes, crawl spaces, and other places where they are rarely disturbed.

What to do:

Thorough vacuuming and removal of potential hiding spots can eliminate most indoor centipedes and millipedes. Sealing entry points and removing moisture Chemical applications around cracks and entry points may also deter more millipedes and centipedes from entering the home.
