House Centipede Control

The house centipede, notorious for the squeamish reactions of people when they encounter one, is by far one of the creepiest of pests. With its long extension of several body segments and numerous leg count trailing as it crawls along the walls of your home, the house centipede is a true “creepy crawler.” The house centipede can have up to 150 pairs of legs! On average, the house centipede can live up to 7 years. For majority of their life, they spend in the moist darkness and come out during the nocturnal hours to scour for food. Even though poisonous, most house centipede bites are incapable of penetrating the human skin. The ones that can, only give an effect no worse than a bee sting. Not many people know this, but house centipedes do assist with our home pest control. Other pests such as bed bugs, silverfish, termites, spiders, and roaches are primary targets for the house centipede. If this is the case, you would think that house centipedes are desirable to keep indoors. However, as stated before, the house centipede is a true “creepy crawler” and they must be dealt with.

How to Get Rid of Centipedes in the House

There are several ways to get rid of house centipedes. Most centipedes are loners, which makes them a lot easier to get rid of. They prefer roaming around minus the entourage of fellow centipedes. Killing on sight is suggested. Here are some recommendations: You must seal off any potential entries. Use dust insecticides, such as Drione Dust, Delta Dust and Pyganic Dust, when filling in cracks and crevices and crawlspaces. In addition, try to keep all areas of your home dry using dehumidifiers and clearing out damp closet space and basements. Setting up glue traps along your floors and corner spaces will also help in managing your centipede problem. After indoor treatments are applied, it would be wise to apply an outdoor perimeter treatment. Spraying a professional residual liquid insecticide (such as Talstar or Demon WP) along the outer walls of your home including the ground base will further assist in keeping centipedes clear and away from your house.

A.   There are several different products for Dust Mite control. Look into Steri-fab, which is a spray that does not have a residual but is great for an initial treatment or one time treatment. Also, Bedlam Bed Bug Spray has dust mites on the product label that is a great product as well and has a short residual of about 1 week to 2 weeks.

Q. What product to get for DrywoodTermite and will you shipped to Hong Kong
My mother has an apartment (on the 9th floor) in Hong Kong and she found termites. I believe they are drywood termites and she is looking for a spray to prevent the termites from developing again. I wonder if you can recommend a strong product and easy to apply - just spraying at the spot will be great. I also wonder if you shipped directly to Hong Kong. Thanks for your help.
A.   Premise Foam seems like the product you are looking for! However, we are unable to ship the product to Hong Kong due to strict regulations on international shipping.
