Centipede & Millipede Removal Services in Mansfield

Thorough Centipede & Millipede Removal in Mansfield

Centipedes or millipedes might not be the first pests that come to mind as a problem, but these sneaky arthropods can be a pain. Millipedes can decimate a well-maintained garden, while centipedes have a venomous bite that can trigger a severe allergic reaction in some victims.

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.

Centipede & Millipede Control Services

Like many pests, centipedes and millipedes are attracted to the warm, dry shelter that our homes provide. Both of these pests seek out damp, dark areas such as attics, crawlspaces, or basements. Centipedes are especially dangerous due to their venomous jaws, which they’ll use to defend themselves if disturbed.

It can be difficult to track down these scuttling invaders once they’re loose in your home. But at Sureguard Termite and Pest Services, we’ve been using our tried and tested methods for more than 50 years. We utilize environmentally friendly measures to remove these pests safely, helping to protect you and your home.
