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.

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.
