What’s The Difference: Millipedes and Centipedes

Centipedes and Millipedes are tinier, often better hidden insects then your
average pest. But do not forget that these insects are still pests who can cause just as
much, if not more harm to you and your household then the likes of cockroaches or

Centipedes and millipedes, like many other pests, are most often drawn into
houses that provide a reliable food source, often when the winter begins. Their small
size (small even compared to most insects) mean they can’t hold in moisture the same
way as other pests. Damp areas of your home are most likely where you’ll often find
them. Both insects are largely nocturnal, meaning they are active in the nighttime. Their
nocturnal activities coupled with their small size means centipede and millipede
infestations commonly go unnoticed by homeowners for long periods of time.
Both types of insects are known to bite when threatened. Centipedes can bite
people in self-defense and inject their venom into the skin. More massive centipedes
may deliver more venom, causing intense pain. When alarmed, millipedes fold up in a
tight spiral frame and secrete toxic chemicals, which can result in a vicious burning
sensation in your skin. If millipedes come into contact with the eyes it could lead to
swelling, itching and redness of your cornea.

Centipede and Millipede infestations are very much bad news and likely require
professional assistance. Since both insects primarily feed on other insects, this means
your house likely has multiple pest infestations. Professional pest control companies
have the skills and equipment for effective house centipede extermination and control,
while also taking on any other type or level of pest infestation you may be dealing with.
