Responsible Pest Control pro’s know where centipedes like to hide and treat their sheltering areas with Responsible methods for the safety of family & pets!

Centipedes are easily controlled with Monthly or Bimonthly Pest Control Services around your perimeters, foundation & landscaping areas.

Key to effective Centipede control is eliminating: the BUGS THEY FEED ON, MOISTURE they thrive in, and harboring areas.

TIP: Eliminate (as much as possible) areas with high moisture. You can do this by removing mulch, dead leaves, grass clippings, loose bark, wood piles, and ground covering around your home.

Centipedes in arizona

  • Centipedes in Arizona neighborhoods are usually in landscaping areas with high moisture, but will enter homes {usual places inside have moisture and are often in: kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and around potted plants} feeding on bugs like flies and spiders, etc.
  • Being bitten by one is painful and may swell, but it’s not lethal.
  • They 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.
  • They are carnivorous and get most of their moisture needs from their prey.
  • They are nocturnal, or active during the night.
