What are centipedes?

Centipedes are leggy, worm-like pests that regularly find their way into our Ogden homes, garages, sheds, and outbuildings. Once inside our homes, they quickly wear out their welcome and become unwanted houseguests.

Centipedes are critters that live outside in areas of dense vegetation and moisture. They are identified by their long segmented body that is flattened from top to bottom.

Each body segment of a centipede has one pair of long thin, legs attached to it. The first pairs of limbs end in sharp claws and contain venom glands they use to paralyze their prey and as a way to defend themselves against predators. Centipedes use their many legs to move quickly from place to place and chase after their insect prey.
