Fox Pest Control is a top-rated centipede exterminator in Northern VA 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 Northern VA centipede exterminators to get rid of the current ones and prevent more from showing up.
You might already know if you have a centipede infestation; but here are a couple of the most common signs centipede exterminators in Northern VA look out for:
Centipedes are fast-moving, nocturnal animals. It’s rare to see them during the day, making them seem even creepier.
Since house centipedes are the most common type of centipede infestation, you may see one crawling along your floor or up a wall. If you do, you’re going to want to get professional help to get rid of centipedes — and Fox Pest Control knows what you need.
Pets, especially cats, could show alert behavior or agitation when they come across a house centipede.
Your technician will conduct a thorough centipede inspection of your home/property and provide a customized centipede treatment plan that will be most effective for your situation.
You will receive a detailed report of the service provided and helpful recommendations to remain centipede free.
We come back regularly throughout the year to ensure the centipedes don’t come back. If you see any centipede activity between your regularly-scheduled service, simply give us a call. We’ll come back for free!
Fox Pest Control provides centipede control services in Northern VA and the surrounding areas, including:
How do you know if you have a centipede problem,
and what do they look like?
Well, centipedes are mostly brown, or orange,
and have legs on every segment of their body.
In fact, the word centipede means 100 legs.
Centipedes enter your home for a few reasons,
but the most common reasons are for food and shelter.
A centipede looks for a warm place to reproduce
and will find it in the dark, damp areas of your home.
Quickly you'll have a problem, because they multiply fast
and can live as long as six years.
To prevent centipedes, it's important to have regularly-scheduled pest control treatments.
This will eliminate other pests like spiders and roaches.
No spiders and no roaches equals no meals for centipedes.
Trying to remove centipedes yourself often results in yucky stains
that will ruin your furniture and carpet.
So when centipedes become a nuisance, don't DIY (Do It Yourself)

I've had nothing but great service provided by this company. I've had a few different companies drop by and try to sell me on their products and services but this company has a different, more friendly and professional approach I could work with. The prices and deals offered were also too good to pass up and the communication from purchase to first visit has been outstanding.
Tech was extremely kind, personable, and helpful. Totally positive experience!
