Getting Rid of Centipedes?

I am from Holland but I have been living on Curacoa for a year now. My apartment downstairs was broken into three months ago. So I moved upstairs because it is harder to break into that apartment. When I moved upstairs my apartment was crawling with centipedes. Some were as big as 20 cm. I have had pest control spray my entire house now 4 times. But they kept coming back.

I found a few in my bed. While I was taking a shower last time, a big one came out to run around my legs. To be honest I am absolutly terrifed of them. I have not been able to sleep or take a normal relaxing shower for three months now. I haven't see any centipedes since they sprayed last time, but that was only a few days ago. I lost trust that they are actually gone. Is there any way to make sure that my house is actually centipede free? Because I really need a good night of sleep. Thanks a lot!

Prevent them by sealing up any cracks or holes, including those in your window screens. They like moisture, so dry out any damp areas-you may have to get a dehumidifier or a bathroom exhaust fan.

If it gets too dry, they leave and move on. Put sticky traps where you see them the most often.

Make sure there is no food or water. Repair leaks and cracks in your home.
