I’m sorry to hear that you’re dealing with these pests. Generally, house centipedes like most other types of centipedes will lay their eggs in soil or rotting wood. However, they do also like any damp and dark place so basements, bathrooms, and closets are good places to check and treat.
If the problem persists, you may want to call an exterminator. While house centipedes are not harmful to humans, pets, or your property, they certainly aren’t welcome guests. You should know that home or renters insurance will not cover the costs of or associated with pest extermination.
However, you can always sign up for the
