House Centipede

This centipede is about 1 inch long and the body is yellowish gray with longitudinal dark stripes. The 15 pairs of legs are very long and the last pair are very long. The antennae are also long and extend out in front of the body. 


Reducing the presence of insects and spiders indoors may help to limit populations of these arthropods. Aerosol sprays and dusts in cracks and crevices may be effective. Sticky traps may also be used.
