What Are Centipedes?
Centipedes are not insects. They are elongated myriapods that belong to the arthropod family, which also includes arachnids. Centipedes are characterized by their long, multi-segmented compositions and multitude of legs. Although centipedes are predators, they pose virtually no risk to your home or health. However, they are known to disrupt your peace of mind.
Are Centipedes Poisonous?
Wondering if a centipede is poisonous is a common homeowner concern. Centipedes are carnivorous. However, they only prey on other insects, injecting poisonous venom into their prey before consuming them. This venom is not harmful to humans. In the rare event you are stung by a centipede, it is comparable to the sensation of a bee sting.
A house centipede commonly has about 15 pairs of legs. However, centipedes can have anywhere between 15 and 177 pairs of legs. They are brown or gray and can be identified by their long bodies, many legs, visible eyes and mouth, and forcipules. In addition, centipedes are known to move at rapid speeds, quickly evading potential predators.
Signs of a House Centipede Infestation
Centipedes are not a severe threat, though a large number of centipedes can be daunting to have in your home. In contrast to other types of pests, centipedes do not leave droppings or cause damage to your home, making it harder to identify infestations. The most common sign of a centipede infestation is frequent sightings.
House Centipede Habitats
Another tricky component of navigating a centipede infestation is that these pests do not have set habitats. Unlike other types of pests, centipedes move frequently, finding new hiding spots daily. Centipedes are often spotted while moving from one location to the next within your home.
Controlling a Centipede Infestation
Centipedes are typically solitary, which makes the risk of a centipede infestation rare. To promote a centipede-free home, we recommend the following:
- Eliminate food sources by pursuing effective pest control to manage other insects.
- Keep your home tidy and decluttered.
- Reduce humidity levels.
- Seal gaps and cracks in your walls.
- Professional pest control.

Here’s What Some Satisfied Customers Have to Say
Schopen was quick to respond to my initial inquiry and they accommodated a change in my
schedule. Luke arrived 10 minutes early and got right to diagnosing the issue. The source of the tiny
critters was found and treated. What a relief! I could not be more pleased with a company and the
service. (Office staff on the phone Kimm and Kiara were professional and helpful.) Thank you!!!
Everyone I dealt with was EXTREMELY knowledgeable. Pricing was fair. And best of all-my ants are
The guy called at the beginning of the time frame window and told me when he would be coming. It
is so nice to get a courtesy call when you have pets and kids. He was efficient and took care of what
Kevin did an excellent professional job with the required inspection. We then hired him to treat our
home for spiders. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.
We hired Schopen to deal with mice we began seeing recently. They were on time, and the Tech Corey was super awesome! He was very informative and explained everything. Listened to our concerns and gave good information back. He found potential entry points and filled them. We had hired a different company before them and wasn't satisfied. Corey went behind them and found some things the other company should have. We have already noticed that there is barely any activity. best part of it, they don't try to lock you into a contract like most pest control companies do, They let you decide what you are comfortable with.
This customer rated you highly for professionalism, responsiveness, and work quality.
This company was very responsive. Once they arrived at my house the workers were very friendly, explained the situation, and how follow up consultations worked. After the first and second follow up visit the company called to see if we had any other questions. Which was very thoughtful.
