Comment on House Centipede – Scutigera coleoptrata by JonC.

House Centipede - Scutigera ColeoptrataHi Jessica, if you’re allergic you should work to get rid of as many as possible. Humans are more important than bugs. If it’s as bad as you say I would contact a pest control company and see what they can do.

In the meantime you could put out a bunch of sticky traps to try and catch them. Also if you can see a bunch of them in the basement suck them up with a vacuum and get rid of them. If you can find out how they are getting upstairs from the basement you can try to limit them as well. Seal cracks and holes in floorboards, around the edges of rooms and pipes and such using expanding foam like ‘Great Stuff’ or silicone sealant and so on. If you have gaps under the basement door throw some towels across the bottom of it or put in a sweep strip on the bottom of the door. If they’re getting in from outside, try to find out where they are getting in and seal it up. Best of luck in resolving your problem.
