Centipedes are not the most attractive kind of guests to have in your house. And although they’re often harmless, they bite when accidentally injured. Their bites are painful and are likely to make you swell.
They are brownish with a flattened appearance. Their length can be anywhere between 1 to 6 inches. Centipedes move very fast. They can also climb walls and ceilings. Centipedes love to live in damp or moist areas. Note that centipedes fear humans and will always run away from you unless you accidentally harm them.
Research shows that the eyes of a centipede are sensitive to light. Thus, they often hide during the day and come out at night to hunt. Centipedes come to your home in search of food, water, and shelter. They mostly feed on spiders and small insects.
