Centipedes are generally found outdoors, under rocks or logs, but they can sometimes make their way into homes, where they prefer damp basements, closets or bathrooms. They are also poisonous, but their bite is seldom worse than a wasp sting and is more painful than dangerous. A reputable pest control service can advise you the best way to prevent centipedes from entering your home, and get rid of the ones that are already there. Since their diet consists mostly of other insects, centipedes might not be bad to have around the yard. Care should be taken not to kill off beneficial insects. A good pest control specialist will be able to rid your home of centipedes in an environmentally friendly manner. Call one at the first sign of a centipede problem.
