Centipede Pest Control Services

Centipedes are multi-legged creatures that can often be found in a variety of habitats across the United States, including Arizona. While they generally range in size from 0.7 to 1.2 inches long, some species may reach up to 6 inches or more in length. They’re easily identifiable by their segmented body, with each segment containing a pair of legs. Centipedes can be found in areas such as mulch piles, grass clippings, cracks in the walls and floorboards, under furniture, and inside closets or other dark spaces.

While there are several species of centipedes that may be found in Arizona, the most common ones include the House Centipede (Scutigera coleoptrata), Arizona Tiger Centipede (Scolopendra heros arizonae), and Giant Desert Centipede (Scolopendra polymorph). Each species has its own unique characteristics, behavior, and habits. The house centipede is known for its distinctive long legs, dark yellow and black stripes, and fast scurrying movements. The Arizona tiger centipede has an orange or tan body with yellow stripes running down its back and can grow up to 8 inches in length. The giant desert centipede is the largest species found in Arizona, reaching lengths of up to 14 inches, and has a yellow-brown body with notes of orange.

Though centipedes are generally harmless to humans, they can be a nuisance if their population becomes too large. Since they feed on other bugs like cockroaches, spiders, silverfish, and ants, an infestation of centipedes in the home can attract and create an even larger infestation of other pests. In addition, some centipedes can deliver a painful bite if provoked or handled, although it is not life-threatening and rarely requires medical attention.

If you’re concerned about an infestation of centipedes in your home or yard, please give us a call.
