Did you know? The house Centipede, or Scutigera coleoptrata is a typically yellowish-grey centipede with 15 pairs of legs. These centipedes eat other insects. The house centipede is commonly mistaken as the Silverfish, which is oddly enough one of the centipede’s favorite insects to eat.


Like Cave Crickets, Centipedes are more of a threat to our comfort level, than anything else. Though centipedes have been known to bite humans, the insect’s bite is as harmless as a house spider’s. New Jersey residents often find centipedes in the basement or lower levels of their home. Centipedes enter the house through floor vents, cracks, pipe voids, and crevices.

Centipede Prevention in NJ

Control techniques include humidity prevention and moisture control. Centipedes nest in damp areas, so basements and garages are obviously trouble areas for these fast running insects. Installing a dehumidifier in a basement or garage is the first step in controlling most insect infestations, including Centipedes. Other prevention techniques that will help solve your Centipede problem include sealing and treatment. Sealing up cracks and crevices in the foundation of your home is key to saving you and your family from these ugly-looking critters. Treatment by a local pest control service may be needed if a Centipede infestation is too large to combat on your own.
