Centipedes can be found in many different areas. Most of the time you will find them in moist outdoor areas. These include: leaf piles, underneath stones, within compost, or other similar areas. Some centipedes will come into homes. You may find them in closets, bathrooms, kitchens, and unfinished or moist basements. Centipedes move quickly and are 2 to 5 cm in length. If you discover a centipede infestation in or around your home contact a ProActive service professional to discuss custom plan options.
