Identify Your Pest >>

Owning a home is an achievement to be proud of, and with it comes pest management responsibilities. You can keep your residence looking great and pest-free by tending to pest prevention practices in your daily routine.


One bug that can ruin the peace and quiet in any home is the centipede. These many-legged creatures aren't particularly dangerous to one's health, but they do have poisonous jaws that can sometimes affect humans. Larger species of centipedes can break skin and the bites can lead to swelling and pain.

Know their habits in the home

Centipedes tend to live in wet habitats, so homeowners should assess rooms that may provide such an environment, such as the basement. If it's humid, consider investing in a dehumidifier to keep the levels in check. For a permanent fix, speak to contractors about what can be done to ensure that your basement stays dry and doesn't become an attractive spot for centipedes.

If you find there are already centipedes living in your home, and a dehumidifier hasn't solved your problem, reach out to pest control services such as Abell to discuss what can be done. Not only will your pest problem be taken care of, but these professionals can give you advice on how to prevent further problems.

Inspect the outside

Centipedes enter your home from the outside, so take a close look at the immediate area around your house. Any dark cracks or crevices should be sealed up to keep the pests out. Additionally, assess whether there's water around the foundation of the home. This can be a result of rain gutter positioning or landscaping.

Any piles of mulch or leaves that sit near your home can grow wet from rainfall and attract centipedes. Tend to garden work regularly and keep these away from your house to discourage the pests from getting inside your house.

Share best practices

Leaving outside doors open allows a multitude of pests into your space, from mosquitoes, to flies, to centipedes. It'll require a little more work if you're bringing groceries in or setting up an outdoor party, but shutting the door can mean the difference between a pest headache and limiting the home only to residents that are welcome.

Pest management may involve many steps, but sharing these responsibilities with others will make the task easier and more effective.
