The House Centipede is a common pest in the Madison, WI area. Centipedes do not cause any damage and may be considered beneficial as they feed on other insects and arthropods. Part of our control strategy is to eliminate other insects that are their food source thus making your property less attractive to them. We will advise you of the conditions that attract centipedes and other insects around your property and offer long term solutions that will prevent their return. Eliminating mulch around the outside and running a dehumidifier in the basement is a good starting point.
