Centipede Control is quite a scary thought. Centipedes can grow rather large, move really quickly and deliver a nasty bite to an unsuspecting person.

These are ideal hiding spots for Insects such as Fish Moths, Ants and Centipedes. Pest Control Johannesburg has the ideal service for all your Crawling Insects Needs.

A snipped of information on common centipedes by our Centipede Control team.
- Centipedes are arthropod insects belonging to the Chilopoda family. Despite their name saying they all have 100 legs, dependent on species they actually range from 30 to 354. Centipedes interestingly always have an odd amount of sectors containing 1 pair of legs, this means no centipedes naturally have 100 legs as the name suggests.
Most centipedes have a potent paralyzing venom that they deliver through their over sized venom claws. They can be aggressive and thus the need for Centipede Control
- The size of centipedes range from 5-6mm to nearly 300mm. There have been approximately 3000 species described from all across the world. These insects are carnivorous insects that mainly feed off other insects. larger species have been know to tackle snakes, lizards and even rats.
- As stated above these fast moving creatures love to hide and hunt in cluttered areas. Underneath pot plants and wood piles host a number of prey insects for them to feed off.
