Centipedes. I was never a fan but don’t have a problem dealing with them if one gets in my house. Outside I leave them alone to hunt other pests Every night this week I’ve killed one or more Centipedes around the fireplace in my living room. This is a new occurrence. Friday night there could have been six. I just killed a second one tonight. To make matters trickier the way the fireplace mantle is built makes it hard to use a flyswatter and very easy for a centipede get out of sight and hide. A properly sealed fireplace will eventually solve this problem. I’m repairing or replacing the doors later this year, but have other improvements that need done first. Until then, does anyone have advise on stopping centipedes? I’d rather not use chemicals. I read windex kills them dead. But I’m skeptical. I’ve sprayed two with Windex but they got into hiding spots - so I don’t know if it worked. Lastly I think there is a bird nest in the chimney with babies who recently hatched. I’ll occasionally hear chirps like it’s feeding time. I’m wondering if there could be a connection with the nest and the recent centipede incursion.
