Rove Pest Control: Brooklyn Park, MN Centipede Pest Control
If you love the outdoors, there is no greater place to visit than the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park in Brooklyn Park. You’ll be able to see mink, beaver, hawks, deer, and other wildlife. You’ll also see a lot of bugs. Seeing them outside is one thing, but the last place you want to see an insect is in your home, especially if they have a lot of legs and fangs.
You might have seen a bug with thirty legs zipping across your carpet. If so, you have centipedes. House centipedes are not insects; rather, they are arachnids, related to spiders. They’re efficient hunters, capable of eating spiders, bed bugs, pill bugs, cockroaches, and silverfish. They will only bite people if they feel threatened. If one ends up in your shoe and your foot follows, you might feel the fanged wrath of a centipede. Don’t worry though, a centipede bite might swell, but it isn’t dangerous.
There are some things you can do to reduce the number of centipedes in your home. First, you need to control their habitat. Start outside by removing piles of leaf litter and wood. Centipedes like moist areas. Second, inspect the outside of your home. Caulk cracks and holes that would allow the arachnids to gain entry. Next, trim back bushes that shade soil around your yard. Dry ground will reduce their habitat. Lastly, remove clutter inside your home, especially along baseboards and in the kitchen. Also fix any leaky pipes under your sinks.
