Fox Pest Control’s Virginia Beach Centipede Exterminator Service

Centipedes, whose name means 100-footed, do not actually have 100 legs. They are flat bodies, with wide legs. If you have seen round bodied, worm-like creatures they may be millipedes. However you still do not want them in your home.  You may have seen one of them slithering across your floor in Virginia Beach, or maybe you’ve even stepped on one. Centipedes are fairly harmless, but their presence likely indicates the presence of smaller, harmful pests. Here at Fox Pest Control, we want to help you get rid of centipedes; we want you and your family to feel comfortable and safe in your home.

Signs of a Centipede Infestation

You might already know  if you have a centipede infestation; but here are a couple of the most common signs centipede exterminators in Virginia Beach lookout for:


Centipedes are fast moving, nocturnal animals. It’s rare to see them during the day, making them seem even creepier.


Since house centipedes are the most common type of centipede infestation, you may see one crawling along your floor or up a wall. If you do, you’re going to want to get professional help to get rid of centipedes — and Fox Pest Control knows what you need.

Pet Behavior

Pets, especially cats, could show alert behavior or agitation when they come across a house centipede.

Things You Need To Know About Centipedes

  • They have sharp pointy legs, pincers which inject venom, and long, slimy bodies 
  • Centipedes are carnivores, so they prey primarily on other insects they find around your home. 
  • The fewer bugs you have around your property, the fewer centipedes you’re likely to have. 

Helpful Centipede Prevention Tips: 

  • Seal weather trimming, door sweeps and other common entry points with silicone caulking. 
  • Seal food in airtight containers.
  • Clean to make sure your home is free of food particles and dirty dishes.

Centipede Control FAQ

How do I get rid of centipedes?

Fox Pest Control is the most effective and efficient way to make sure centipedes are permanently evicted from your home in Virginia Beach. While there are home solutions that can be used to eradicate centipedes and their food sources — other insects — home remedies often drive the insects deeper into the home rather than exterminating centipedes.

Are centipedes poisonous to humans?

Centipede venom isn’t usually strong enough to seriously harm people or pets. But in general, the larger and more colorful the centipede, the stronger the venom. 

Are centipedes dangerous?

These little critters rarely bite people unless threatened. In fact, there are people in some countries who keep centipedes for pets and give them free rein of their house. 

Do centipedes have pincers?

Centipedes have a powerful pair of pincers under their heads that they use as needles to inject venom. 

Can centipedes bite?

With pincers located under their heads, centipedes can bite people if handled improperly. 

Are centipedes aggressive toward people?

Although they’re not exactly cuddly, they aren’t usually aggressive toward humans.

Virginia Beach Pest Control Reviews

5 Stars

The person that signed us up was very nice, pleasant & knowledgeable. The 2 people that came to our house to apply the substances to kill the bugs were very nice and did a good job and especially Hannah who was very happy to check everywhere in our house and did a great job. We like her very much. We have seen a few live ones here and there but I know you will be back next month so they will give those areas another good going over. Thanks for the good work.

Aaron W. was on time, professional, quick, and friendly. He told me exactly what he was going to do, the reasons for doing them, and reassured me that the chemicals wouldn't harm my pets. At the end he made sure I knew what he had completed and asked if I had any questions. I am glad I decided to use them for pest control.
