  • Centipedes are elongated, multi-segmented insects with one pair of legs per segment.
  • They vary in size but are typically 1 to 6 inches long, with a color range from yellowish to dark brown.
  • Centipedes have a pair of long antennae and move quickly with a wiggling motion.
  • They are commonly found in damp areas like bathrooms, basements, and under rocks or logs.
  • In South Carolina, the House Centipede is a common species encountered in homes.

Centipedes Habits

  • Centipedes are predators, feeding on other small insects, and can help control other pest populations.
  • They prefer moist and dark environments and are often found in bathrooms, basements, and crawl spaces.
  • Centipedes are nocturnal, most active at night, and hide in secluded places during the day.
