House Centipede

The house centipede (1" - 2" long) has a worm-like body with a pair of long slender antennae and 15 pairs of legs. Often called "hundred leggers", it runs rapidly, holding its body well elevated above the surface. They feed on spiders and other insects, are usually found in damp basements, and do not damage food or furnishings.

Controlling this pest involves identifying and treating the voids or cracks where the centipedes are hiding.
