So How Do You Get Rid of House Centipedes?
Let’s face simple facts: if you want your house centipede problem to go away, you have to take action.
They won’t magically disappear one day unless you do something about it.
Here are the options you have for a solution to your house centipedes problem…
Hire an extermination company. It will be expensive. Don’t believe me? Go pick up your phone book, look up a local extermination company, give them a call and ask them about it. It will cost you hundreds of dollars and they probably won’t even guarantee that their methods will be effective on the first try. You will probably have to call them again for a return visit, costing you more and more money. Not a great option.
Use pesticides yourself. Whether ordering online or buying something from a local shop, this option isn’t very appealing either especially if you have children or pets. Besides, only the most harmful chemicals are most effective. Diatomaceous earth and boric acid are not terribly effective.
Besides, do you really want to wipe your sink, bathtub, toilet, counters, dishes, bookshelves, pipes, heaters, and carpets with chemicals? No? Well, I don’t blame you. It doesn’t sound like a healthy, safe solution to me either.
Live with them. Actually, this isn’t a solution at all. But I thought I’d mention it because it’s amazing how many people will just “give up” on their house centipedes infestation and decide there’s nothing they can do about it.
Well there is something you can do about it.. and it’s all laid out for you right here…
