Centipede Control Services

Creepy, Crawly Centipedes

Centipedes, with their numerous legs and elongated bodies, can be unsettling to encounter in your home or business. While they play a role in controlling other pests, centipedes can become a nuisance when their populations grow out of control. Some people even have a fear of centipedes called scolopendrphobia. At Zone Pest Solutions, we understand the challenges that come with a centipede infestation, which is why we offer comprehensive centipede control services to help you eliminate these pests.

What Are Centipedes?

Centipedes are arthropods belonging to the class Chilopoda. Unlike millipedes, which have two pairs of legs per body segment, centipedes have one pair of legs per segment. They are commonly found in damp, dark areas such as basements, crawl spaces, bathrooms, and other areas with high humidity levels. While centipedes typically do not pose a direct threat to humans, their presence can be unsettling and may indicate an underlying moisture problem or other pest issues. In addition, all centipedes are poisonous, however, the severity of their venom simply depends on how much they can release. Most centipedes found inside a home don’t release enough venom to cause serious injury unless you are allergic to their bite. However, they can bite, thus leading to additional fear of these small insects.

Georgia Centipedes

Georgia is home to several species of centipedes, each with its own unique characteristics and behaviors. Some of the most common types of centipedes found in Georgia include:

  1. House Centipede: House centipedes are light brown or gray in color and have long, slender bodies with numerous legs. They are commonly found indoors in damp, dark areas such as basements, bathrooms, and kitchens. House centipedes are known for their speed and agility and may prey on other household pests such as spiders, cockroaches, and silverfish. While these can bite, typically the bite is minor as their jaws are typically too weak to break the skin. If anything, the spot may swell slightly and cause minor pain, unless of course, you are allergic to them.
  2. Stone Centipede: Stone centipedes are typically brown or gray in color and have shorter bodies with fewer legs than house centipedes. They are commonly found in outdoor habitats such as gardens, mulch beds, and leaf litter but may enter homes and buildings in search of food and shelter. While the stone centipede is able to bite and inject venom, it usually causes only minor pain and irritation. Typically, they are not strong or large enough to bite, but it is possible. As long as you aren’t allergic to their bite, a bite from a stone centipede is similar to that of a small bee sting.
