Seeing some creepy crawlers roaming your basement lately? House centipedes are not dangerous, but they are no fun to stumble upon when you wake up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Learning how to kill house centipedes for good can be done in a few easy steps.
1. Learn why you have house centipedes
House centipedes love dark, damp places. Having a leaky faucet, a damp basement, or cracks in your house’s foundation can all be bait for house centipedes. Discovering the reason for your centipede infestation is the first step.
If you have damp leaves lying around near the bottom of your doors outside, this can also be a premium house centipede nesting area. Check both outside and inside locations to find bugs.
