Centipedes and Millipedes in North Carolina

 

Centipedes and millipedes often share the spotlight for having the most legs among insects, but the risks they pose to your health and the well-being of your home are less well known. While they might seem similar at first glance, understanding their differences is crucial for effective pest control.

We’re here to guide you through identifying, preventing, and treating centipede and millipede infestations in North Carolina with expert advice from the professionals at Clegg’s Pest Control.

 

Identifying Centipedes and Millipedes

Centipedes and millipedes, despite their shared leggy appearance, have distinctive characteristics. Centipedes, with their flattened bodies and single pair of legs per segment, are agile predators. On the other hand, millipedes, featuring rounded bodies and two pairs of legs per segment, move more deliberately and feed on decaying plant matter. Other key differences can be seen in their physical structure and behavior, with centipedes having prominent antennae and millipedes often coiling up when disturbed.

Signs of a Centipede or Millipede Infestation

While these creatures prefer to stay outdoors, spotting centipedes or millipedes indoors could be indicative of an infestation. Centipedes tend to favor damp areas like bathrooms, while millipedes might gather in basements. Keep an eye out for shed exoskeletons, feces, or a musty odor, as these are signs of their presence. Identifying entry points and sources of moisture that may attract centipedes is your first step toward keeping them away.

Centipede and Millipede Prevention and Treatment

Preventing centipede and millipede infestations starts with proactive measures. Reduce moisture in and around your home, seal cracks, and eliminate hiding spots to make your environment less appealing to these creatures. While you can implement these preventive measures on your own, Clegg’s Pest Control provides targeted treatments that not only address current infestations but also prevent future occurrences.
