Southeast Michigan, Metro Detroit & Ann Arbor Area Centipede Treatment


How to Identify A Centipede Infestation?

Simply put, centipedes are gross. No one wants to see these “creepy crawlies” around their home. Knowing what signs to look for will help you determine if you have a centipede problem that needs professional help.

Contrary to popular belief, there is actually no centipede species with exactly 100 legs. Clearly, their name is a misnomer.

There are actually approximately 3,100 centipede species. There are so many that a unified description is impossible and they don’t all have the same number of legs. Some species only have thirty legs, while others have up to 354. Most centipedes are either grey, brown, or black in color. Centipedes are actually considered myriapods, which is why a centipede’s body is so elongated and they have so many legs.

Why You Might Have Centipedes

Does your home offer any damp areas either inside or directly outside? An unfinished basement that is humid, a broken pipe under a sink or even a bathroom can be great places for centipedes to hang out.

Centipedes also prefer sweet food. Any unsealed sweets could attract these creepy crawlies into your home. In addition to sweets, centipedes eat other bugs, look for them in places where other pests live.

If your Detroit Metro and Ann Arbor area home is easily accessed, then it won’t be hard for centipedes to find their way in. Cracks in the foundation or unsealed doors or windows can all provide access to centipedes. They don’t need much space to come into your home and cause a problem.

Reasons to Treat Your Centipede Problem Immediately

Centipedes are not extremely dangerous to humans however, if they invade in mass quantities it can be unsightly.

Centipedes do bite! They are predators that use poison on their prey. This poison is delivered by their pinchers. Although their bite can be painful and even cause some swelling, most centipedes are not strong enough to pierce human skin. Similarly, most pets cannot be harmed by centipedes.

Centipedes can be a huge nuisance and typically indicate other pests in your home. If you suspect a centipede problem, contact Guardian Pest Control. Our professional centipede exterminator will help you get rid of the centipedes immediately and assess your entire pest situation to discover the underlying reason your home has centipedes.
