Effective Centipede & Millipede Control in dallas

Some pests that scurry through the streets of Dallas often go unseen. Centipedes and millipedes are arthropods with armor-like shells and hundreds of legs. While millipedes only usually cause problems in the garden, centipedes actually have a venomous bite that can cause serious allergic reactions.

If centipedes or millipedes are skulking around in the shadows of your Dallas, TX property, contact Sureguard Termite and Pest Control.

Centipede & Millipede Control & Removal

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.

Centipedes and millipedes love damp, dark areas like basements and crawlspaces. Centipedes can pose more of a danger to children and pets because they’re more susceptible to the venom. Millipedes typically much through plants in the backyard, which is a pain if you’ve spent a lot of time tending to your garden.
