How to Remove Centipedes
Centipede control is not a difficult task and one that is frequently part of a pest control program. Spraying a house or commercial structure’s exterior several times per year can effectively help to kill centipedes before they enter as well as control a large variety of pests that centipedes feed on, thus removing their food source. If you encounter lone centipedes, they can be crushed and disposed of. Setting up glue traps in areas centipedes are noticed will also provide some minor control.
It’s also a good idea to remove conditions that are conducive to centipede activity. Try whenever possible to reduce the humidity of indoor spaces by using a dehumidifier and correcting any leaks or malfunctioning drains. Centipedes can squeeze through the tightest of cracks, so whenever possible, try to seal cracks with caulk and replace weather stripping around windows and doors as needed for a tight seal.
