How To Identify A Centipede Infestation

Appearance - Centipedes are little creatures with many legs - as few as 15 or as many as 300, which can give them a “hairy”appearance. They range from being flat with many legs to looking more spider-like with longer, bent legs and a shorter body. Some even grow to be seven inches in length!

Behavior - Centipedes love damp, moist areas and will gravitate to unfinished basements, bathrooms, and closets. In these places centipedes are able to find food; primarily other insects. These pests are easily able to climb walls, as well as speed across your floor. Centipedes are nocturnal, coming out at night, and are rarely seen during the day.

Why You Might Have Centipedes

Centipedes thrive in damp areas on your property. If you have a leaf pile, composting area or live near the woods or lush vegetation, you could expect a Shelby, AL centipede infestation at some point. If you have a cool, damp basement, or simply have a bathroom with indoor plumbing, centipedes may come to visit. Centipedes eat other bugs, and where they are other bugs, centipedes may follow.

Reasons To Treat Your Centipede Problem Immediately

Due to the persistence of centipedes, any small work you do such as knocking them off walls or spraying at-home remedies will only keep them away temporarily, and then centipedes will be back soon enough to drive you crazy again. Reducing moisture through the use of a dehumidifier, and fixing any plumbing issues will make your home less inviting to centipedes.

Centipedes can bite humans. The toxins they produce are enough to kill a small bug, but will only cause pain and swelling in humans. Having a centipede infestation increases the chances of a bite.

The key is to get rid of centipedes for good. Our proven centipede extermination process will keep the situation under control. Call now for Shelby, AL centipede control.

Reviews

Arrived right on time and got right to work. Very friendly and very knowledgeable.

Someone came by pretty quickly to inspect the attic because I had a problem with a critter up there. Everyone was approachable and worked professionally. They were all great to work with, but honestly, I would rather not have to call them out again! :) Will certainly tell other people about them.

I signed up for the quarterly plan but because of a bad mouse infestation, they were servicing my house on a monthly basis. No additional charges though, since the extras services were still a part of my program. All of the technicians were polite and dependable. Their work was wonderful! Top marks for the company! I only wish we could have continued with them but we moved down to Florida.


December 4th, 2016

The representative was awesome. He solved the problem quickly and told us what he was doing every step of the way.


September 5th, 2018

We had a great visit from Presto-X. The specialist addressed our questions and let us know the treatment options. He checked outside and the garage. After doing the service, he went over the procedure with us.


June 21st, 2018

I received a comprehensive treatment for the house today! I was well-informed of the treatment plan and pricing for the complete maintenance program!


June 15th, 2018

At first, I was ashamed to admit I had a pest problem. But Presto-X's rep was very understanding and comforting. Even when he had a sprained wrist, he was nothing but professional and kind in treating our home. No THAT'S quality customer service!


November 8th, 2018

My experience with Presto-X is nothing short of excellent all throughout. All their reps always treat me with genuine kindness, keep me well-informed, and deliver extremely professional service. Though I had carpenter bee issues, they treated both in and outside so I would be rest assured of a pest-free home. Best of all, they go way, way above and beyond to meet their customers' needs and satisfaction. For example, one rep took off his shoes before entering my home. Another treated my deck and balcony, neither of which were not part of the service. Yet another took a video to introduce himself because I was not home. While they go the extra mile, they also know what they can and cannot do. In one instance, the rep explained why he cannot treat the eaves on my second floor because he did not have the license to do so. To say that I am happy with their service is a huge understatement. Presto-X is synonymous to EXTRA-ORDINARY servce!

I highly recommend Presto-X, especially their rep who was very courteous and meticulous when doing the treatment.
