The house centipede like to live in a damp environment. The house centipede is from the arthropod family and have about 15 pairs of long legs.
These little animals are about 1 1/2 inches long, the problem is that for each one you spot there are a few dozens around you never see. They like homes because each home has wet environments. The cellar, bathrooms, behind kitchen walls or toilets are all places they like and can be often found. Most people notice them when they see them trapped in the bath or their sink.
Centipedes lay between 70 and 150 eggs after they are 3 years old. This is a lot and getting rid of one is not going to solve your problem. They mainly hunt insects who often like moist too. So if you have other bugs in your home you have a paradise for the little centipede. They live 5 years on average depending on the environment and food supplies. Newborns have 4 pairs of legs and after molting’s they increase the number of legs.
The most common is the S. coleoptrata
