Traditionally, pest control companies offer only a spray treatment for most pests. These sprays are fast acting but not long lasting and are dangerous to people and animals, therefore, there has to be an evacuation period. Eco Smart Pest Control offers comprehensive treatments that are long lasting, effective, and environmentally friendly. All of our products are non-toxic and harmless to people or animals.
Eco Smart is proud to introduce our new Cedar Bug-Free line of bug sprays for pets, people, and plants. Cedar Bug-Free products are 100% All Natural, non-toxic, and good for your skin. A light misting kills biting insects and provides all day protection.

Centipedes are large insects, which are more difficult to get rid of than smaller insects like ants or even roaches. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer for a product to make its impact. Centipedes rarely infest the inside of a house and are more common entering from the outside, so treating one’s yard is recommended, either the entire yard or just the perimeter of the house. When Eco Smart treats for centipedes we will use a sand-like granule substance that is time released, casting a wider perimeter than for other insects.
The Eco Smart solution to this problem is to use products that are long-lasting, effective, and environmentally friendly for both the home and the yard. These products last about three months, will not harm humans or pets, and require no evacuation during treatment.
Below are detailed descriptions of the centipede treatments offered by Eco Smart for your home and yard.
Home Powder Centipede Treatment
Our service technician applies the patented Eco Smart powder under all cabinets (if possible) in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry areas, and under and behind all major appliances such as the refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, washer and dryer. The Eco Smart powder is electrostatically charged so, as the centipede walks on the powder, the powder sticks to its exoskeleton. The powder dehydrates the centipede, and as it attempts to clean the powder off its body, it ingests some of the powder which assists in killing it. The powder stays active for up to three months providing a long lasting solution to your centipede problem. Depending on the size of your home, the application usually takes thirty minutes to an hour to complete.
Home Spray Centipede Treatment
The interior spray treatment for centipedes consists of spraying a non-staining, non-odorous water based spray mixture under all cabinets (if possible) in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry areas, under and behind all major appliances such as the refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, washer and dryer, near trash bins, plumbing cracks and crevices, and along baseboards as well as doorway entrances and exits. The spray treatments are cheaper than the powder treatments but, since the residual effect of the spray is only approximately three to four days, the spray treatments are not a long term solution and require a number of follow up visits. The spray treatments are usually reserved for real-estate transactions or to satisfy a lease agreement when moving out of a rental property.
Yard Centipede Treatment
For yard treatments, our service technicians use two products: one is a granular product that looks like and has the same consistency as beach sand, and the other is a liquid spray. The granule is impregnated with a long lasting time release formula that is moisture activated. This product is applied to the perimeter of the home creating a barrier or buffer zone around the home. Once the service technician has applied the granular product he then sprays the yard with the liquid mixture that will activate the granules and will also kill any adult centipedes. This granular product stays active for about three months and provides long lasting protection.
