Excuse the Language…
But **What The Fuck Is This tHiNg?!**
I was simply walking around, checking to see which plants needed watered, and this is on the goddamn wall next to our (no longer “spooky”) Halloween banner. I then ran into the kitchen to find a glass to trap the sucker in. Seriously, does anyone know what this is? I’ve never seen anything like it, and have lived here all my life. After I snapped some pictures, I released it into the wild of our back yard, hoping that it won’t take down any of the dogs. I’m not afraid of snakes, rats, or spiders but, Jesus, I have my limits.
I did a quick search just now & stumbled across a cool site called What’s That Bug? Apparently it is called a house centipede & is harmless. Here is what they said to a guy who wanted to get them outta his house:
“We do not recommend ridding your home of House Centipedes. They are harmless predators that will eat more destructive and harmful arthropods in your home.”
Good to know, although I would be happy if I never found another one in my house as long as I live!
