It is very tempting to kill a centipede when you see one at home. But that’s why we must not do it!
These little animals are actually very useful. First, they love to eat all the bugs that bother us every day such as flies, cockroaches, spiders, silverfish, crickets or earwigs.
In addition, centipedes are not dangerous for humans or their pets.
If the centipedes bother you at home, here is what to do.
The best thing to do is to dry the moist parts of your house and leave “sticky” traps.
If you have a lot of centipedes in your home, maybe it’s because you have too much dirt.
But the best thing to do is to let them live. Indeed, these animals are very useful.
When we see a centipede in the room, in the kitchen or in the bathroom, we just want to kill it… But we must not do that!
One of them, the scutigera is very impressive with its large size. You can find it in the cold and moist places in your home. And it is also a real predator for other insects.
Indeed, without it, your bathroom and kitchen would be invaded by spiders, cockroaches and ants.
If you see one of them, put it in a jar and release it into the wild. It can not hurt you so do not kill it!
Think about it the next time you see one!
