Centipede Removal Services in Toronto



Centipedes are worm-like insects, with 15 legs (two long legs at the back), and two antennae. These insects are typically an inch in length, and can be a reddish-brown or a greyish yellow colour. Centipedes nest and breed in the attic space and make their way into the home. They prefer damp and dark areas, such as bathrooms, cellars, and closets. These insects will hide in cracks and crevices during the day, and come out at night to look for other insects to feed on.


Treating centipedes begins with a complete attic dusting or fogging. Centipedes also require a full crack and crevice spray of all baseboards in the home (mainly targeting damp and dark areas). This residual spray will kill on contact.


For the treatment, anyone under the age of six and pregnant women must be out for 24 hours, and anyone else (including pets) needs to be out for four hours.
