Question: What is the best way to keep centipedes out of the house?

Answer: Centipedes will invade structures when conditions inside are suitable or possibly the outside areas are too hot and dry. Control of centipedes begin with reducing or eliminating the surrounding moist areas outside the house (leaf debris, dead logs, grass clippings. ) The crawl space or basement should also be well ventilated and kept dry for long-term results. Openings into your structure should be sealed with caulk as best as possible. After you have taken these steps, you can begin treatments if it is still necessary. The best way is to eliminate their food sources. This is best done by having a professional come and treat for insects.
