Most people who find a Centipede in their home or yard wonder, “Are Centipedes poisonous?”….The answer is Yes.
Watch out for centipede bites! Centipedes have poisonous jaws and inject venom with them. Large centipedes, like the one pictured above, can break through human skin. Centipede bites are like a bee sting and cause pain and swelling. The bigger the Centipede, the bigger the bite.
Centipede bites are painful and can swell, but they aren’t lethal. Centipede bites can be comparable to bee stings, and just like bee stings, allergic reactions can make reactions to centipede bites worse.
- Centipedes are effectively controlled with Responsible Pest Control’s monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly Pest Control Services.
- Centipedes seek moist areas, so eliminating (as much as possible) areas with high moisture around your home will help in controlling them. You can do this by removing thick mulch and ground covering around your home.

Pest Control Failures
Why didn’t your pest control work? Pest Control doesn’t work for several reasons including: Improper mixing, inappropriate products for target pests, incomplete applications, sanitation, structural damage & resistance.
Wrong Product Application
Regular (or general) pest control does not kill all pests! Scorpions, Roaches and other pests require specific product applications to be effective! Using the wrong products results in FAILURE every time!
Scorpions require specialized products designed specifically for scorpions. Roach infestations also require specific products and applications different from scorpions, ants and other pests. Using the correct products applied in the right way for targeted pests is the only way to EFFECTIVE pest & Scorpion control!
Improper product mixing is a common problem for those who are untrained or do not read and understand professional pest control product labels. This can lead to a watered down application, or over application which poses safety risks. [Read more…]
