The Q&A Archives: Black and yellow centipedes

Question: Are black and yellow centipedes good or bad for the garden?

Answer: Centipedes are considered beneficial in the garden. Centipedes prey on pests and insects in the soil including slugs, worms and fly pupae. I'd just leave them alone to do their work.
