House Centipedes are found both indoors and outdoors. It is the occasional one on the bathroom or bedroom wall which disturbs us. That and the ability to bite although bites are uncommon. These locations however are not where they normally originate. Centipedes prefer to live in damp portions of basements, closets, bathrooms, unexcavated areas under the house and beneath the bark of firewood stored indoors and out. If you see centipedes and want them gone, contact Bugs Or Us!
