While centipedes are not considered one of the most common reasons people call an exterminator, they are certainly high on the list in some states. Centipedes are not only creepy-looking, but they also pack a seriously painful bite. These insect pests often hide in bedsheets, under covers, behind shower curtains and in other areas they are least expected. Unfortunately, most people feel the bite before they realize a centipede is near them.
When centipedes enter a home, they are typically looking for moisture and food. Centipedes eat other insects, like cockroaches. While this would be beneficial if they were outside, no one wants a biting insect living in their home. Through professional Centipedes Control Maui, a home can be free of these annoying pests, so its occupants are not in danger of being bitten.
There are a few different steps that will need to be taken during Centipedes Control Maui. The first step is eliminating all of the areas centipedes can gain entrance. This means sealing off cracks and crevices and removing wood piles and other debris from around the home, so moist areas do not provide a welcome mat for centipedes.
A pest control company will also seek to remove any food sources the centipede may eat. Other insect pests can offer a buffet of choices for centipedes. If these are not eliminated, the problem could return.
Using pesticides and traps, the technicians will seek to remove all eggs, larvae and adult centipedes, so the home is free of pests. This can take time since nests may contain centipedes in various stages of growth. As the centipedes feed their young, all of the population will be taken care of.
While centipedes are beneficial in the wild, they can pose an annoyance when they enter a home. If your home has a centipede problem, contact the professionals to remove them. Call Bowman Termite and Pest Management LLC right away and allow them to schedule your home for a pest control treatment. Through their expert services, pests of all kinds can be removed from a home, so the occupants are safe.
