Many homeowners are caught off guard when they begin to see centipedes entering their home. This often happens when there are moist areas in the home, such as those occurring when there are leaking pipes or wet basements. These arthropods typically hide in moist areas of the home during the day and only come out to feed at night. Centipedes are carnivorous and will eat spiders, worms, and insects. While their bite is not typically harmful to humans, it can be painful and cause irritation. Unfortunately, these creatures do not leave any signs they are present in a home so most homeowners only know they are around when they see them. With Centipedes Extermination Services, centipedes can be effectively removed from a home.
If a homeowner sees centipedes in their home, it is important they seek the professionals for Centipedes Extermination Services. While most centipedes lay eggs, some produce live young. A single centipede can lay up to thirty-five eggs in a single reproductive phase, which means they can multiply rapidly and cause a full infestation. The goal of the exterminator is to not only remove the centipedes but also identify the reasons they are attracted to the home so they can be taken care of.
Chemical and non-chemical treatments are typically used in conjunction to ensure the population is eradicated. Finding where the centipedes are entering the home is crucial for preventing them from coming back. Some of the recommendations of the exterminator will be reducing clutter, repairing leaks, using dehumidifying devices, and removing the food source.
It takes a concerted effort to remove centipedes as well as the spiders and insects they feed on. The exterminator will draw up a complete treatment plan to help ensure the full problem is remedied and ensure repopulation does not occur.
