Centipedes

Order: Chilopoda

Family: Arthropods

Most people refer to the centipede as the invert   ebrate with 100 legs, but in reality the number of legs that they have, ranges between 20 to over 300 legs. One of their primary key traits are their venomous claws on their heads, which they use to paralyze victims. They are normally a brown to red colour and vary in length of about 4 mm to 300 mm long. There are 8000 species of centipedes all around the world, and they can be found in numerous environments, from tropical rain forests to deserts. In North America they prefer dark, moist areas and can be found in secluded areas, such as the basement, bathroom, and closets. Most of them are carnivorous and feed on insects, spiders, and other arthropods. Signs of infestation would include seeing them scurry around.

My tenant had a cockroach problem in the basement, so I called Termax. They came at the scheduled time and took their time to spray all the cabinets and baseboards. Ever since that treatment there has no longer been any cockroaches.

I called Termax for my raccoon problem back in June. The technician took his time to explain us the situation. He installed a one-way door and the next day my problem was solved. He even found 5 baby raccoons in my attic that I was unaware of! They also sealed up all my vents to prevent any other raccoons or squirrels from breaking in again.

I heard noises in the middle of the night so I went to take a look. When I went to my kitchen I saw a mouse running by! I'm terrified of mice so my friend told me to try calling Termax even though it was really late. This was around 1am but they still sent a technician out right away when I called. He came within the hour. Not only did he catch the mouse for me but also laid some bait stations around my house. I was really happy with their service, haven't seen a single mouse since then
