Some of centipedes’ natural habitats include dark, moist and secluded dwellings, like under rocks and logs. They love these wet environments and also thrive in rotting wood. They can burrow deep into the ground, and are attracted to spots filled with other small bugs to eat.
Due to their slender and malleable bodies, centipedes can slip indoors through small cracks around the foundation of homes. You will most likely find them around bathrooms, closets or basements, but they are hard to spot, and effectively remove, because of their nocturnal habits.
They are carnivores and forage for worms, spiders and small vertebrates at night. Centipedes detect prey with their antennae and sting their food with paralyzing venom. If you attack one of these pests, beware — they may bite you, causing pain and swelling similar to a bee sting.
The most commonly encountered species that invade homes are house centipedes (Scutigera coleoptrata). If you turn on the lights and spot one of these fast moving predators on the wall, contact Staten Island Pest Control immediately for efficient centipede extermination.
