Comment on House Centipede – Scutigera coleoptrata by Sherry.

House Centipede - Scutigera ColeoptrataGlad there are others who understand! Let me first say that I am a very strong person, but not when it comes to all things creppy crawly. I woke up with a large bite/sting on my neck and was perplexed as I live in a brand new condo and do not have any bugs….or so I thought! I killed a large centipede that was racing toward my bedroom ceiling and have been a complete wreck since and haven’t slept in days. Is it possible to just have one or do you think there are more lurking. I have approached this as though it was a bed bug problem and have made a moat around my bed – the bed is pulled away from the wall and the legs are siting in plastic containers of vaseline with double sided carpet tape around the outdide of the containers. I was laying in my fortress of a bed feeling secure and then remembered it was on the ceiling. What if it falls on my bed? I am losing it!! I read they dont like cold,so should I just crank up the air conditioning every day when I leave for work? I don’t have bugs and my condo is dry and spotless – why in god’s name are they here when there are no cracks for them to enter. Did they come up drains or through vents? Lots of questions but this girl is losing it ! Thank goodness for wine and for this dite!
