Wacky Pest Wednesday: Centipedes
Hey there all of you Tri-County Pest Control fans and welcome to our new weekly segment – Wacky Pest Wednesday – where we will share with you all some wild facts we have come across from the pest world we have been entrenched in for more than three decades.
Today’s Wacky Wednesday Pest Fact focuses on the centipede.
We know many of you homeowners can be creeped-out by these wiley and menacing looking pests. Did you know that centipedes actually can have anywhere between 15 and 177 pairs of legs – depending upon their species.
Wow, that’s a lot of get-up-and-go!
Even with all of these legs, the front legs of a centipede aren’t structured for walking. Actually, they become venomous fangs, which they use to paralyze prey. They are very unique to centipedes.
Now, that is wacky!
