Pest NameDescription 
CentipedesCentipedesCentipedes are a class of arthropods related to insects. Centipedes are very fast moving and flat. Centipedes have a pair of poison jaws that assist them in overcoming prey. Hence they are considered beneficial predators. Centipedes have a single pair of legs on each body segment. They are variable in length, but most are about an inch long. They are found in many places but are usually found in protected places such as in the soil, under bark, or in decaying stumps or logs. Indoors they can typically be found in basements, bathrooms, or where other insects are found.
