Identify Your Pest >>

Centipedes are a garden pest and perfectly happy to remain outdoors. But if you give them an opportunity, they'll follow moisture and humidity indoors and become a pest problem in your home.

Taking steps outdoors to remove entry possibilities is your best hope to keep centipedes outdoors. If you've already discovered there's widespread evidence that you have centipedes on your property, your best move is to call a professional pest control service like Abell Pest Control, which will assess the severity of the infestation and recommend a treatment plan. They'll also suggest ways for you to avoid the problem in the future.

Preventative steps

While centipedes don't present a significant health danger to humans, they can bite and cause swelling, pain, fever and weakness. However, in addition to avoiding painful contact, you'll want to prevent multi-leg centipedes from entering your home because they're a nuisance that no homeowners want to see disturb their household routine.

Assess the outside of your home to find out where centipedes may gather. Any cracks or crevices should be sealed up to keep the pests out. If there's water around the home's foundation, make sure your rain gutters are positioned for run-off away from the house.

Clear away piles of mulch or leaves that can harbor decay and moisture that draws centipedes. Keep up with your gardening to remove dead leaves and weeds that also encourage the spread of these pests in your planters or landscaping.

Interior moves

Inside the house, assess whether humidity levels are excessive for the indoor environment, particularly in basements. Invest in a dehumidifier to dry out your basement or any other space that fosters moisture. If there's a persistent problem, consult with a contractor who specializes in removing moist interior conditions that can damage your home and draw pests.

Don't leave outside doors open, especially in warm weather, because a host of pests like centipedes will be able to enter easily. Rather than slide the door stop into place, remember to close the door while you're bringing groceries into your home or going back and forth during an outdoor party. Make sure all your windows and doors have undamaged screens so that pests can't slip through a small tear.

Be sure to alert all members of your family and frequent visitors of these preventive steps and encourage them to make closing doors a habit. You'll be thankful later when you don't find bugs in your house.
