Fox Pest Control’s Boston Area Centipede Exterminator Service

Centipedes are creepy crawly arthropods who are known for having 100 legs. Centipedes do not really have 100 legs, but can move very quickly and their 15 pairs of legs can easily become blurred. They are carnivores who eat other small insects, and are harmless to humans. On paper, having centipedes in your home doesn’t sound so bad, until you see them. Seeing a centipede scurry away when you turn a light on is enough to cause a sleepless night. Thankfully, you’re not alone. Fox Pest Control and our team of Boston Area exterminators are here to help.

How To Get Rid Of Centipedes | Fox Pest Control

How do you know if you have a centipede problem,

and what do they look like?

Well, centipedes are mostly brown, or orange,

and have legs on every segment of their body.

In fact, the word centipede means 100 legs.

Centipedes enter your home for a few reasons,

but the most common reasons are for food and shelter.

A centipede looks for a warm place to reproduce

and will find it in the dark, damp areas of your home.

Quickly you’ll have a problem, because they multiply fast

and can live as long as six years.

To prevent centipedes, it’s important to have regularly-scheduled pest control treatments.

This will eliminate other pests like spiders and roaches.

No spiders and no roaches equals no meals for centipedes.

Trying to remove centipedes yourself often results in yucky stains

that will ruin your furniture and carpet.

So when centipedes become a nuisance, don’t DIY (Do It Yourself)

Insead, call Fox Pest Control for same-day service.

We’ll send a certified, licensed pest pro to your home to do a free inspection and give you a quote.

After your service, we’ll give you information on how to prevent centipedes from returning.

And don’t worry, because we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee,

which means we fix your centipede problem for good.

Fox Pest Control. No Bugs. Simply Better.

Centipede Control FAQ

HOW DO I GET RID OF CENTIPEDES?

Fox Pest Control is the most effective and efficient way to make sure centipedes are permanently evicted from your home in the Boston Area. While there are home solutions that can be used to eradicate centipedes and their food sources — other insects — home remedies often drive the insects deeper into the home rather than exterminating centipedes. 

ARE CENTIPEDES POISONOUS TO HUMANS?

Centipede venom isn’t usually strong enough to seriously harm people or pets. But in general, the larger and more colorful the centipede, the stronger the venom.

ARE CENTIPEDES DANGEROUS?

These little critters rarely bite people unless threatened. In fact, there are people in some countries who keep centipedes for pets and give them free rein of their house.

DO CENTIPEDES HAVE PINCERS?

Centipedes have a powerful pair of pincers under their heads that they use as needles to inject venom.

CAN CENTIPEDES BITE?

With pincers located under their heads, centipedes can bite people if handled improperly.

ARE CENTIPEDES AGGRESSIVE TOWARD PEOPLE?

Although they’re not exactly cuddly, they aren’t usually aggressive toward humans.
