Comment on House Centipede – Scutigera coleoptrata by Catlynn.

House Centipede - Scutigera ColeoptrataJust found a house centipede trapped in the produce scale at my local food co-op (Petoskey, Michigan, April 23, 2012), only the second one I’ve ever seen. I rescued it from The Screamers, and will be relocating it to my house. My first reaction to unusual insects and arachnids is always OOOH, PRETTY! Rather than Ick, kill it! And the house centipede is one of the prettiest. Thanks for passing on the word that it’s beneficial. I hate the thought of it gobbling up any of my lovely spiders, but, hey, we all have to eat… Thanks again for the information.
