How Do You Get Rid Of Centipedes?
• Kill them on sight! Their freakishly long legs make them very fast so you’ll have to be quick. Centipedes don’t usually invade homes in large numbers, so you may be able to get rid of your problem just by stomping on, or bug-spraying, every one you see. If you don’t want to kill the centipede, you can try to catch it in a jar and release it outside, but this usually leads to a high-pitched scream, a broken jar, and a free centipede. • Get rid of all other pests in the home. The centipedes will have nothing to eat, and will hopefully die or move in with the neighbors. • Keep your home dry! Centipedes dry out and die if they don’t stay in a moist environment. Clean up basements, closets, or any other damp areas, and use a dehumidifier. • Try setting up sticky traps. Just place them in corners and crevices where centipedes tend to hunt. You may also catch other insects that are sneakily crawling around your home. • Close off all entrance points. This will keep the bugs from entering you
