Our remedy for centipede control

First, contact us. Centipedes are found throughout most of United States and the world. Centipedes are rarely seen by humans due to their nocturnal activity and the speed in which they move. Most centipedes live for more than a year and some up to six years.

Centipedes and more than 12 other common household pests are covered under our Healthy Home Maintenance Program.

Centipedes usually live outdoors in damp areas such as under leaves, stones, boards, tree bark, or in mulch around outdoor plantings. If they are around the foundation of the house, they may wander inside. Most centipedes are active at night.


Centipedes eat insects, spiders, and other small invertebrates.
