Centipede & Millipede Control in Ovilla, TX

Do you need help with a centipede or millipede problem in Ovilla?

We have some really big centipedes and millipedes here in Ovilla and, unfortunately, they’ve become a common nuisance in area homes. Neither species is very destructive but having an infestation of centipedes or millipedes is still highly unsanitary as well as deeply unnerving. Both will hide out in the depths of your home and emerge to slither around exploring in the dark of night. There is perhaps nothing more frightening than flipping on a light and surprising one of these creepy creatures!

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.

Both centipedes and millipedes are many-legged arthropods. The centipede is a carnivore and eats insects, whereas the millipede is more of a scavenger that would rather take a bite out of your houseplants. The centipede is venomous; the millipede is not, but neither will typically try to bite or sting you. Regardless, you don’t want these bugs taking up residence inside your home in Ovilla. A professional pest control company can help you get rid of them.
