This usage of "maintain" is very odd to me. Its primary sense is "uphold" and one of its important derived meanings is "sustain" or "keep supplied". So it sounds like you're saying that without house centipedes, the population of other pests would drop below a certain desired level, when what you really mean is the opposite. IMD we would use "control" here.
