Signs of Centipedes

Centipedes are fast-moving insects with long bodies that have up to 15 pairs of legs. They are nocturnal, which means they are most active at night when people are sleeping. Centipedes are often found in basements, bathrooms, and other areas that are dark and humid. They are able to survive outdoors in warm climates, but are more common indoors during the summer months.

Signs of a centipede infestation include:

  • Small holes in walls or wood
  • Small droppings that look like crushed pepper
  • Seeing centipedes in the daytime
  • Seeing many dead or dying centipedes

Centipedes are attracted to moisture, so you may notice them in areas where there is a lot of moisture. For example, you may find them in the basement or near a humidifier. They are also attracted to food, so you may notice them in the kitchen or near pet food. Centipedes are nocturnal, so they are more active at night when people are sleeping.
