The centipedes live in dark places under cowdung, stones, bark of the trees, in termite mounds , under mosses, in the agriculture fields, under flower pots etc. They are nocturnal in habit and come pout only for surface feeding. They do   only but when disturbed. They are not vicious in nature. However, their bite may be dangerous. They do not enter ear , as it is interpretted and as they have their name like. But since they are nocturnal  and photonegative in habit , once they enter a hole they may not like to come out. They enter human ear is  a myth.
All the species do not have 100 pair of legs, varying from 9-177, hence their name "Centipede" is a misnomer- just a mere representation of possessing multiple legs.

They are found singly under stones, logs, leaf litters, cow dung, flowerpots, bark of trees, sheath of banana stems, in side termite mounds, etc.
The most suitable habitat where one can expect to find them is an area with optimum moisture and temperatures conditions near a forest patch, around ponds, lakes or rivers or on the hill slopes, etc . They are nocturnal and the most appropriate time for their collection is either early in the morning or in the evening hours. However, in

There are more than two thousand five hundred different species of centipedes. Centipedes adapt very quickly to the environment that they find themselves in. As a result they are found all over the world. Centipedes can make crushed leaves, garbage, mulch, moss, swampy dark waters and deserts their home. Centipedes can also survive in arctic conditions.

They could also be living in your home in the basement. Centipedes can thrive in your bathrooms. Cellars and attics that have not been used for a while are a perfect habitat for centipedes. The Geophilomorpha is a sea faring centipede, they can stay underwater for many hours in the day, the daily vacillation between high and low tides makes no difference to its existence. Centipedes mate in dark, moist spots. The female prefers laying here eggs in moist areas. In fact if the area is moist enough and is not frequented by other animals then centipedes will spend their entire lives there.
