House centipedes are a common household pest in Wisconsin. These long-legged arthropods are yellow to brown in color. Despite their “hundred-legger” nickname, house centipedes only have 30 legs. Like millipedes, these speedy pests love damp and dark areas, such as leaf piles, bathrooms, rotten logs, and basements. House centipedes are insectivores, which prey on roaches, ants, silverfish, and more. 

HOW TO GET RID OF CENTIPEDES?

  • 1. Centipede Problem
