Centipedes In Canada


Size: 2.5 to 15 cm long.

Colour: Mostly brownish or orange brown.

Behaviour: During the day, centipedes hide in dark and damp areas, and become active at night to forage for food. Centipedes are found where large numbers of other insects are since they feed on them. Their prey are other pests including spiders, beetles, moth larvae, ants, and worms. They even prey on other centipedes too. They are predators and use ambush tactics to disable their prey. Discovered in places with plenty of cracks and crevices, centipedes infest basements and garages, and are often found outdoors in mulched gardens too.


Frequently Asked Questions

Terminix Canada has been liberating businesses from disgusting pests for over 90 years. That’s why you can trust our centipede pest control team in your space.

While keeping your business clean and sanitary, and sealing foundation gaps is key, our centipede treatment provides true peace of mind. DIY centipede removal tactics are inferior solutions to our industry-leading centipede extermination techniques.

The core season for treating centipedes usually takes place over four months, from May to August.

A venomous pest, a centipedes’ bite is not harmful to humans but can be very uncomfortable with swelling. Centipedes don’t normally leave signs of an infestation, nor do they damage buildings or contaminate food. However, their sheer scary appearance provides businesses enough reason to want swift centipede removal.

Centipedes feed on other invading species like cockroaches and spiders, so an abundance of prey often lures these pests indoors. You may find centipedes in cement block walls, boxes, clutter on the floor, or floor drains. Food, water and the warmth and safety of a heated structure may also attract centipedes inside to reproduce. If food is discovered near exterior walls, they can easily penetrate gaps in your businesses’ foundation.

Indoor centipede pest control involves improving ventilation or lowering humidity and moisture in basements and crawlspaces. Outdoor centipede pest control involves the removal of any boxes, boards, compost piles, woodpiles, leaf litter, grass clippings, and plant materials.

For an effective solution you can trust, call Terminix Canada. Our centipede pest control is the best way to permanently remove these crawling eyesores from your property.

    Wow, did we have a raccoon problem! Unbeknownst to us a raccoon family was living in our attic. We knew that it was some form of wildlife that was creating the crazy … read more noises that was preventing us from sleeping but had no idea that the culprits were relentless raccoons. Thanks to Adam’s experience in the field and his persistent actions, the raccoon family exited the house. It was not an easy process and took many logical and creative tries. Adam is a skilled problem solver with a wide range of skills in the construction field that make him particularly adept at this type of job. With the assistance of Marshal, he got rid of the raccoons. Both Adam and Marshal are to be commended for being both persistent and positive during this challenging time for our family. The raccoon noises were disrupting our entire household and we were exhausted. A huge thank you to Terminix and particularly to Adam and Marshal for helping us enjoy our home again. I would highly recommend the work done by Adam and Marshal. Terminix is fortunate to employ such skilled professionals.
