Fox Pest Control is a top-rated centipede exterminator in Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island centipede exterminators to get rid of the current ones and prevent more from showing up. If you are looking for Rhode Island pest control services near you that tackle centipedes look no further than Fox Pest.

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)
