Fox Pest Control is a top-rated centipede exterminator in Lancaster, PA and the surrounding area. Centipedes are creepy-crawly arthropods that are known for having 100 legs (which is why some call them “hundred-leggers”). Centipedes do not really have 100 legs, but because they move very quickly, their 15 pairs of legs can easily become blurred, making it seem like they have a lot more. Sometimes, centipedes are confused with millipedes or silverfish. Centipedes are carnivores who eat other small insects, but are typically harmless to humans. On paper, having centipedes in your home doesn’t sound so bad… until you see them. Seeing a centipede scurry away when you turn a light on is enough to cause a sleepless night. You’re not alone.
Thankfully, Fox Pest Control has a team of Lancaster centipede exterminators to get rid of the current ones and prevent more from showing up. If you are looking for Lancaster pest control services near you that tackle centipedes look no further than Fox Pest.

We find technicians extremely polite and knowledgeable. Last year had a terrible swarm of ground bees nest on our deck. Fox came and eradicated the issue promptly and did not let them get in the house. They also got rid of ants. On a personal note, we have a small dog. Every single technician that comes takes a moment to pet him. The kindness that shows makes them obviously not only stellar at what they do but caring in their dealing and observant with customers. A great company with skillfully trained folks Recommended.
Our property has and is serviced by Fox. They've proven to be reliable, knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. I do have to commend John, one of your staff for providing us with thorough service and a bank of knowledge which made me so much more confident in the service.
