We Can Help You Get Rid of Centipedes, Earwigs, Silverfish, and Millipedes in Your Homes

What are occasional invaders?

Occasional invaders include pests such as centipedes, earwigs, silverfish, millipedes, crickets, and beetles. They tend to wander around houses from time to time but live outdoors. They are typically found near windows and entrances trying to get out. Centipedes have long, worm-like bodies and use their numerous legs to move. Earwigs are nocturnal and are usually located in the crevices of walls where they feed on insects. Silverfish are wingless insects that damage flowers, fruits, vegetables, and other plants.

Most occasional invaders are not particularly dangerous. However, they are considered a significant invader and cause frustration and discomfort. Earwigs are often said to climb into a sleeping person’s ear where it will lay eggs or burrow, but this is not true. Centipedes are also nocturnal insects active during the night and found on moist soil, leaf piles, and trash cans outside.

Why do I have an occasional invader problem?

Occasional invaders can find their way inside homes while searching for food. Centipedes, earwigs, silverfish, and millipedes are nocturnal and typically become active at night as they seek refuge in dark and humid areas. Unfortunately, weather in Alabama can get scorching during the day, which is one of the main reasons occasional invaders move indoors.
