Why House Centipedes Just Love Our Souderton Bathrooms
Advice From Moyer Indoor | Outdoor
Are you finding bugs in your bathroom? Big, ugly bugs with 15 pairs of legs that stick out from their sides like pointed spikes. Have you seen them stuck to a high corner or clinging to the wall near the floor? Have you found one in one of the sockets of your jetted tub or tucked into the grout of your shower? They're called centipedes. But you probably already know that. What you may not know is why they love your bathroom so much. The answer can give you some valuable insight about your home and its ability to keep pests out.
Souderton centipedes are house centipedes, known scientifically as Scutigera coleoptrata, but they are more accurately called bathroom centipedes or cellar centipedes. While you can find one of these bugs crawling on a wall in your living room or making its way across the rug in your bedroom, house centipedes are much happier in rooms that are high in humidity.
