How to Get Rid of House Centipedes – Last year I was facing a centipede house problem of very disturbing infestation. I realize that some people do not believe there is no reason to due to the fact that they eat other nasty crawling critters in and around the house. I personally did not subscribe to this opinion, however, that none of these other creatures were nearly as scary as the centipedes were gone.
I remember one case in particular (though it’s almost an isolated occurrence) when I had woken up in the middle of the night, thirsty. Have I made my way into the kitchen to pour myself a glass of cold water?
By the time I turned on the ceiling lights, I very nearly had a cardiac arrest. Two house centipedes were on the kitchen floor making who knows what, but the light scared them and they ran … fast! A centipede made his way through the kitchen sink, but the other bratty little monster made a certain v-line to my bare feet!
I jumped, ran, and screamed like an idiot in 3 or less in the morning. I got my water from the bathroom sink and went back to bed, more committed than ever to get rid of centipedes once humanly possible.
One thing I noticed while reading the forum posts and using my own common sense was that there was no way I would ever permanently go through extermination or bug bombs. This could work in the short term but the world has an unlimited supply of snakes and other insects, and while my home was still the kind of place these creepers considered acceptable to live in, they keep coming and coming.
So, I did not get rid of centipedes via genocide.? Not only is this quite ineffective, but it can also get very expensive. And since I have a new child (only one-year-old at the time), there was no way I would be willing to fill my house with toxins. No way.
So killing was not the answer – not as a permanent solution anyway.
