The Science

Centipede and Millipede Risks

Millipede Allergic Skin Reactions

Millipedes can cause mild allergic reactions if they secrete defensive fluids and you get them on your person or in your eyes.

Centipede "Bites"

Rather than bite, centipedes can pinch, and venom is injected through their front legs — potentially causing a reaction similar to a bee sting.

Our Approach

Treatment Plans That Work for You

Orkin Pros are trained to diagnose and treat centipede and millipede problems. Because every home is different, they work with you to design a unique program for your situation.

The Orkin Approach

The Orkin Approach


We’ll inspect your home from top to bottom, inside and out, for current or potential pest problems.


Orkin Pros will treat the perimeter of your structure with the appropriate materials, remove all accessible spiderwebs and wasp nests, and use the safest extermination methods available.


We’ll do everything we can to keep insects out—seal, caulk, plug, and secure gaps and cracks.

Keep Watch

We’ll treat the interior of your home and install pest monitors in critical areas such as kitchens, baths, utility rooms, and garages.


We’ll always provide a detailed report of services rendered and recommendations to help keep your home free of pests.

Follow Up

We’ll stay in touch between our regularly scheduled visits and respond to any immediate needs.

Custom Treatment

Centipede and Millipede Treatment Plans Tailored To You

Every home is unique, and so are our centipede and millipede treatments for you and yours.


Our pest control Pros will survey your home and craft a treatment plan that may involve both non-chemical and chemical treatment methods.


Preventative actions may include sealing around doors, windows, cracks, gaps, and crevices, plus reducing moist places that promote their survival.


If chemical products are the most effective and efficient approach, your plan might include exterior and interior applications of products.
