Centipede and Millipede Control in Red Oak Tx

 

Most centipedes that are found in Texas are relatively small, but some species can grow to be over nine inches long when fully grown. These insects typically live in humid moist environments such as in soil, in leaf litter, under rocks or under wood. Centipedes and millipedes are known to be more as a nuisance than a pest. They tend to spend their winters as adults and lay their egg during the warmer months. Centipedes will bite if provoked, but the bite is usually not medically threatening except to small children or individuals that are allergic to venoms. Millipedes do not bite, but they can produce a fluid that can cause an irritating reaction to the eyes, blister the skin, and produce an unpleasant odor. Centipedes and millipedes do not transmit disease to humans, animals, or plants.  The house centipede can be found in areas such as closets, bathrooms, or underneath the home where the environment is damp and protected. To prevent centipedes and millipedes from entering the home make sure to seal any points of access.
