PEST CONTROL GESTION PARASITAIRE EXTERMINATION
Centipedes are not insects but arthropods. They are not harmful, but simply a nuisance and unattractive, especially when found indoors.
The Centipede has many body sections and many legs. It also has a more flattened body and only one pair of legs per section, with long legs allowing it to move more quickly. Centipedes have 15 pairs of long legs and long antennas, and are usually 2.5 to 5.0 cm or 1 to 2 inches long.
Centipedes will move in when drains, basement, or bathroom areas are overly damp. The Centipede will also often hide in cracks, crevices, and behind baseboards.
