Why do I have so many house centipedes?
House centipedes prefer damp and dark areas. As a result, homes with moisture problems can attract these pests. Residents may see them in basements, closets, or bathrooms, sometimes even in tubs or sinks. House centipedes will prey on insects that are in the same areas.
Should I be worried about house centipedes?
Thankfully, house centipedes are frankly too afraid of humans and do not actively seek them out as any sort of prey. So dont panic; you and your family have nothing to worry about. However, larger species of house centipedes can bite if they feel threatened, especially when roughly handled.
