- Chemical control
Centipedes are nocturnal pests. Since they are very active at night, they can be harmful to humans due to their nasty bite. These bites can be very painful, cause swelling, fevers, chills, and muscle weakness. Children and people who are allergic to bee stings can be at higher risk as larger centipedes can puncture human skin, which can induce anaphylactic shock in some people. Centipedes feed on decaying leaves and plant matter and are commonly found under trash, mulch, grass clippings and rotting wood. They will invade homes and like living in damp moist areas like basements. Pest control services in Brampton can take care of infestations of centipedes in Canada. Getting rid of the pests before their nasty bites can cause damage is the key!
