You Should Never Squash A Centipede
Despite their rather gruesome and unnerving appearance, they are largely harmless to human beings and serve a helpful purpose within the life cycle of other creatures and in the prevention of the spread of disease and illness.
A lot of the time it can be their size that it off-putting as well but they are no more likely dangerous just because they are a little on the larger side.
However, if you don’t wish them to visit your property, a good way to discourage them is to use a dehumidifier as they prefer moist places.
Moving piles of wood and leaves away from your house will also discourage them as they like to hide away in these sorts of places.
