Centipedes

What Are Centipedes?

Omaha Pest Control has many years of experience controlling these pests. Centipedes are a very common pest in and around Omaha, Nebraska.

Easily recognized by their many legs, these creatures are commonly found throughout the Midwest United States.

House centipedes are yellowish to dark brown and may have darker stripes or markings. Although the word centipede means “100 legs”, most of these pests have between 15-177 legs. Centipedes are actually not insects, they are instead an arthropod relative. They feed on silverfish, carpet beetle larvae, firebrats, cockroaches, bed bugs, spiders, and other small arthropods.
House centipedes live in damp spaces such as rotting logs, under stones, in mulch or yard clippings and in trash. They are nocturnal creatures and primarily stay outdoors. But when conditions are right, they may come inside.

A Centipedes first pair of legs forms claw-like poison fangs. Although their bite can be painful, there are no long-lasting effects.
