  • Identification: The Centipede is generally 1-2" long with a flat and elongated body. They are usually brownish in color with many pairs of legs. 

    Habits: The Centipede lives outdoors in damp areas such as mulch beds or under rocks, logs, and piles of yard debris. They are nocturnal predators of other insects. When they invade a home it is most often in damp areas like a basement or bathroom.

    Control: A thorough exterior treatment at foundation level with a residual insecticide and a light treatment around the interior will effectively control centipedes.  Monroe Pest Control Co., Inc. will eliminate your centipede infestation in one visit and we warranty our work.
