8 Effective Ways to Get Rid of Centipedes

While majority of centipedes exclusively live in the outdoors, there are some species that are some that live or venture inside especially during colder months. Centipedes usually inhabit damp areas such as under leaves, tree backs, boards, stones and mulch around plantings. So if they’re living around the foundation of your house, it’s possible for them to wander inside.

Although they might be helpful in killing spiders and insects around the house, these creepy-crawlies contain venom in their bites which can be harmful hence they’re not elegant guests in your household. If you want to get rid of centipedes in your house, here are ten steps you can take.

1. Killing

Most people prefer this method since apart from fearing the centipede venom they also hate them as much. Killing is often considered the best way to get rid of centipedes since when you kill them; you get rid of them permanently. It is good thing centipedes do not invade our homes in large numbers hence once you spot one of them you can stomp on it or bug spray it then dump it outside.

2. Go Chemical extermination

There reaches a time when the natural remedies refuses to work and you are forced to go chemical. Most insecticides are temporary solutions but effective in killing them. Most garden solution store have insecticides. Through the help of sticky traps, you can be alerted of the heavy traffic areas where you need to spray.

If you only have a problem with the centipede, you can use an insecticide such as Drione in the places where the centipedes are hiding like behind cracks, crawling spaces and under the furniture. Keep in mind that centipedes often follow a moving prey and these are the high traffic areas hence they will definitely fall prey of this trap. However, as I have said, insecticides are only a temporary solution and are dangerous to useful insects such as honey bees. It is also wise not to use the insecticides for a long time.

3. Use sticky traps

Place these traps along the corners where centipedes often conduct their hunting and these traps will not only capture the centipede but also the insects in the house. This method is usually very effective given the fact it will also help to determine which other insect you need to eliminate to deprive the centipede of prey.

4. Put a barrier around the entire home

Think about creating a moat like barrier around all entrance into your home given the fact that centipedes often migrate from outside into the home. You can use either a chemical insecticide or natural insecticide to fulfill this task. In case they make it through the barrier; they will end up dying in the house. You can use organic pesticide containing cyhalothrin which does a great work with ants but will perform even much better with centipedes.

5 Keeping The Centipedes Away

Sometimes, you are only looking for ways to get rid of the centipede and not necessarily to kill them due to your own reasons. There are a number of methods available to ensure that you do not kill the centipede but you only prevent them from infesting your homes. Below are five such methods.

6. Get rid of small household pests

Just like most pests, centipedes will move in to where there is more food for them to feed. By getting rid of other pests, you will be creating a temporary famine for them and they will automatically move to look for food elsewhere. Ensure you have got rid of all pests in the house.

6. Close all entrance points into your home

When you seal these points, you will not only be stopping centipedes from invading your home but you will also be preventing pests from moving in which is one of the primary factors why centipedes move into our houses.. Seal all cracks in the foundation and concrete floors, eliminate all the spaces below the doors and around the windows and cover the basement floor drains with window screen.

7. Try Cayenne pepper

For a natural way to get rid of centipedes, try applying a thin layer of cayenne pepper at the entrance points of your home. This is both outside and inside your home. Ensure you keep your pets such as dogs and cats away from it.

8. Try to keep your home dry

As I had said, centipedes strive to stay in a most microhabitat. In case your house is not dump, they will run away since they are going to dry up in such an environment. Ensure you clean your basements, closets or any other damp areas in your house. Use a dehumidifier to do this. Place packets of silica in the dampest places around your home. Silica is a drying agent hence it absorbs moisture from the ground and air. You can find silica packets in new shoes.

WHY BUY A Zojirushi Bread Maker?

People, especially those with many demands on time perceive a bread machine as an invaluable equipment, but by far, make Zojirushi bread maker your favorite machine. This is because bread baking is made as easy as pie with this incredible equipment. Here are some of the pros and cons of using it.

Pros of Zojirushi Bread Machine

Most importantly, the machine enables you to knead the dough so as to come up with variety of shapes of your choice. This feature is desirable for artisan loaves. Also, your stand mixer will be saved from wear and tear.

The bread maker is also accompanied with an amazing recipe book that gives instructions for whole-wheat, basic, miscellaneous and sweet dough’s recipes such as jams, meatloaf and bread machine cake. You will therefore save money that would have been spent on a recipe book for a bread machine.

Zojirushi BB-HAC10 bread maker has a countdown timer that lets you know the exact time your loaf of bread is going to take before it is ready. This means you are able to plan your repast ahead of time.

Zojirushi BB HAC10 Count Down Timer

It also has a delay start function that ensures flexibility which is a key in today’s hectic life. Imagine putting your ingredients into a machine then instruct it when your food should be ready! In this case, you can delay the starting time until when appropriate. You will therefore be able to prepare your food one day in advance provided the ingredients used will not spoil within the specified period and at room temperature. Be cautious not to use this feature if your ingredients include egg products and fresh milk but dry eggs and dry milk are fine.

The machine also has a feature that enables one to know the exact time to add mix-ins such as berries or nuts. Another feature lets you to check the dough’s consistency while it is kneading. Different crust settings allow for customization of the crust e.g. making it crunchy or brown. Keep-warm feature leaves the bread warm and fresh at any time without heating up the whole kitchen.

Cons of Zojirushi Breadmaker

Nevertheless, there are some weaknesses associated with the machine. The obvious one is that it is slightly expensive. However, the advanced features described above are enough to accept that the price is worth its value. 1 lb Zojirushi machine goes for about 190 USD while the 2 lb one retails for about 250 USD.

Though not terrible, the browning of the bread is a bit uneven when this machine is used. This may not be desirable particularly to those who are planning to gift their loaves to others.

If the delay start feature is used, you have to leave the machine’s kneading hooks. This causes holes to develop in the bottom side of the loaf. Again, this may not be a problem for you but for others, it might be.


Generally, if you can afford this machine, then make it your priority for home baking forays because it is easy to use, efficient, versatile and more importantly the design is intuitive. It is indeed the home maker’s best bread machine available in the market.

Incredible Dream Machines ByGreg Jacobs & Tim Godfrey

My last (million dollar) launch was in 2012, and since that time I have been locked down, DEEP inside the crowdfunding industry.

Eating it, sleeping it and breathing it.  Feeling my way around it,  getting to know the players, the trade and the tricks.

In fact, my first crowdfunding campaign raised over $500K and we are looking at an 8 figure valuation for the company.

In a hurry? See and hear me explain the launch details in this JV video.

As you may know already, I am not one of those guys who just churns out product after product.

I don’t do “theory”.

I ALWAYS become a master at whatever it is that I’m selling FIRST.

Then after I am set as a major player in the industry and have the knowledge and connections to help, that is the time I go out and create a comprehensive course based around my own success.

Now, every single one of your customers knows what crowdfunding is,  and they may even have backed a crowdfunding campaign in the past.

But what they may not know is that Crowdfunding is not some mysterious platform reserved for “inventors.”

It is something that THEY TOO can take advantage of.

Of course, there are complicated “inventions” on the platforms,  but when you start to look deeper at the industry, you soon realize that creating a successful project is considerably easier than it appears on the surface.

In fact, we have research that shows that a HUGE number of successful campaigns are nothing more than a direct china source with a little marketing magic sprinkled on it.

Basically, it’s like picking plump strawberries from the fields assuming a simple “connect the dots” system that any newbie or online marketer is accurately followed.

And THAT is what ‘Incredible Dream Machines’ is.

Our price point is $3k – you get over $1400 for EACH sale you make and we also have a $50k first prize (with may possibly double but more on that soon)

Launch date is September 22nd with prelaunch a week before.

OK, so what you are going to need to do RIGHT NOW is get signed up and get your Clickbank ID Whitelisted.

If you don’t get Whitelisted, you won’t be able to promote and believe me when I say… this is going to be THE launch of 2015. We are expecting to be paying out millions in commissions, and we want YOU to get a slice of action.

So get signed up, and after you have done that, we will be in touch.

See you on the inside.


P.S.  We are booking up slots on our webinars right now,  IF you can put 300 on, get with my partner Tim Godfrey RIGHT now to get your spot locked.
