Centipedes are arthropods with only one set of legs per body segment. They don’t necessarily have 100 legs as the name “centi” suggest; they can have more or less legs. Centipedes are venomous, they use their venom to kill their prey. They can bite human beings; the bigger the centipede, the more painful the bite will be. The bites can also cause allergic reactions in both adults and children. There are several different types of centipedes such as the House centipedes, Amazonian Giant centipedes and the Texas Redheaded centipedes. The house centipedes are not harmful; they feed on spiders and other insects. Amazonian Giant centipedes are very large and aggressive. Texas Redheaded centipedes are found in Texas and have a redhead with a black body and bright yellow legs.
Millipedes are also arthropods with two sets of legs per body segment. They prefer to feed on decaying organic materials like leaves and compost. Unlike centipedes, millipedes are not venomous, but they do emit a stinky liquid when they feel they are being attacked. This stinky liquid can not only stain the skin and make it smell, it can also irritate the eyes and skin. There are several different types of millipedes ranging in size, shape and color. Giant African millipede for example can grow to be more than 15 inches long but with only a few amounts of legs. There is also the Shocking Pink Dragon millipede are very beautiful, but it can also emit toxins. Cave millipedes like to dwell in cool, moist areas such as caves.
Crickets are insects that serve as food to other animals as well as humans. They look like grasshoppers, but they are rarely green; mostly brown and black in color. IF you find crickets in your homes, it is due to three reasons; food, shelter, and light. They find food, shelter and light in your lawn, garden, flowerbed, basement or cellar. They are not considered a danger to plants, pets, or humans unless they reach infestation levels. Crickets lay eggs and if unchecked, they will continue to grow and multiply. You will find them mostly in the spring and summer.
Earwigs are brown or black colored insects with flat bodies and reddish coloring on their head and limbs. They feed on other insects, on piles of leaves, greasy food in your kitchen, moss, fungi, and lichen. As nocturnal insects, they like dark, damp places such as a cool basement. They will dwell amongst stacks of old boxes, books or papers laying around.
Silverfish are small, wingless, nocturnal insects with long, flat bodies and shiny, silvery-grey scales. They can enter your homes by themselves or through a container brought into the house. You will find them in your basements, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and kitchen as they like damp areas. They will feed o paper, photographs, wallpaper, cotton and linen clothing, sugar, flour, bread, cereals, meats, dead insects, rolled oats, and the list goes on, but they can survive for months without food.
Spiders are venomous arachnoids with eight legs and there are several different types in the world. Spiders can bite but most of them do as much harm as a bee sting or mosquito bite do. Those that bite with venom only bite when they feel threatened. Their venom can cause muscles to cramp and become rigid.
You can take some preventative measures to avoid these invaders in your homes. You can make sure that your yard is tiny with no piles of leaves or stones and rocks hanging around. Make sure food and important paper materials is stores in containers and not left out in the open. Try to shut off the lights outdoors if you don’t need them
