The House Centipede is another pest that primarily lives outdoors under rotting logs and in leaf debris. In homes, they tend to be in the high moisture areas like basements and crawl spaces. Centipedes hunt spiders and insects for food.
While not a health threat, their size (up to 6″), long legs, and speed tend to un-nerve homeowners. Reduction of habitat outside and reducing interior moisture (dehumidifiers) can help reduce the population inside. Application of materials around the exterior perimeter and carefully applied to interior activity areas will further reduce the number of Centipedes seen.
