    So I'm sure i'm not the only person who hate cenipedes.

    However i've come to deal with them because when you turn the light on they run like a jolt away from you.. except last week when one ran towards me and last night when one fell out of a dish towel and into my hand.. bloody thing was at least 2 inches.

    I still haven't gotten over the one that was carrying a peice of dog food kibble for dinner across my kitchen floor 3 years ago.

    I think they have a nest in or around my house anyone else have or had problems with these horrid creatures?

    Dear god, as if you had to bring that thing up in another topic.

    I got those quite often at my old basement apartment before I started near-daily Raid sprays. Fucking things scared the shit out of me when I'd go for a towel and they'd be like "OH HAI! U SEEN MAI DISGUSTING?"

    I've had the occasional critter too. I have an 100+ year old house so there's bound to be things like that. I only noticed one recently after I redid my kitchen floor. I called the cats in to kill it and ended up using raid. Fortunately? I have a lot of cellar spiders that keep most insects in check--and as long as they are downstairs where I don't go very often, they can live.

    That is a House Centipede and is freaky as all get out. To get rid of them I usually scream like a girl and throw a shoe at it until it disappears. They actually eat a lot of other insects like spiders and ants, but they are so freakish who wants to live with them?

    Funny story. I used that post to test out to see if I had the IMG codes right for the pic. Then everytime I tried to delete that pic my computer froze. So I just edited it and made it into some post about dog names.. Sorry you barfed a little icon_lol.gif

    Problem is Mike that spiders attract them because they are one of there main sourses of food. I use to have spiders a lot of them until these friggin things showed up.

    Thanks Zombie. I was trying to get to like them this summer learn to live with them but now that I touched one by accident and they feel as gross as they look they need to get the eff out. Tip for killing them thou. Use a fly squatter. The holes in the squatter lets the air travel thru so they don't feel you coming. things like shoes create a a little movement in the air which makes them run like hell which is another reason there so gross.. Oh that and when you do finally kill the bastard thing its legs still keep on moving icon_cry.gif

    The ones that live in the jungles are orange and are about a foot long. I take it you've never seen the video on youtube of one eating a mouse?

    Because I actually died a little after I watched it.

    Ugghhhhhh. That thing reminds me of all the critters I found in my apartment when I lived in the Caribbean. Talk about nastiness. Thankfully they were always on the floor and most of the time dead. Thankfully my landlord sprayed for bugs regularly. icon_smile.gif

    They typically don't bother me and sometimes I will pick them up and take them outside instead of killing them...


    HOWEVER...

    one day, I was down in the basement and one ran from behind the toilet near my foot...not only did it nearly scare the shit out of me (literally) I almost pissed on my foot. Lol.

    But I don't have a problem when I see them approach, lol, but when they surprise me...bad things can happen. Lol.

    I know I got kinda pissed off too because the video seemed really more about the joy this guy got out of watching this mouse being tourtured than the Cenipede eating. But a bug that big needs a mouse or a frog to fill his belly.

    Still.. the fact that something like that shares this planet with me is a reason to sleep with one eye open.

    Common house centipedes are so cute!. I get them all the time and the cat eats any he can catch. Don't kill them! They are in your house because there are other buggies and spiders for them to eat.

    One of these somehow got into Best Buy while I was there, wriggling on the smooth tile floor but getting nowhere. It was at least 6" long. I had never seen one before and thought it was some new little toy they were selling. But once I learned it was alive I got a chill up my spine. Apparently each leg is also a stinger. It drew a lot of attention and all the teenagers who work at Best Buy forgot to help customers for about ten minutes. Kinda like Hollister all the time. ;-)

    Anyway, f*cking creepy!

    Yeah see i'm down with a spider and I don't mind the potato bugs even if they do make a gross crunch when you step on them coming down to get a glass of water at night in the dark..

    However these cenipedes have a very alarming look about them that makes me have to kill them a little bit.

    Maybe I should get a cat and put this f*cker down the food chain which currently he seems to be on top off.

    That's a purdy one. Unlike the house centipede it could probably give ya a painful dose of venom. It's still cute though.
