Comment on House Centipede – Scutigera coleoptrata by Mona Lisa.

House Centipede - Scutigera ColeoptrataI have just been bitten by one of these house centipedes. 4:00am I felt a sting on my neck, I grabbed the area and felt something scwochy and wet, I pulled it off and smushed it between my fingers in the dark, I got up and looked around my bed to see what had bitten me, there was nothing in sight,I new I wasnt dreaming because my neck began stinging like a bee sting, I kept looking through my bed sheets and there he was in a fold. I captured it in a CD case and ran to the computer to see if this thing is poisonus,all I could find out about it was that it would be irritated at bite site for a few days but to watch it for alergic reaction. So far just a mild burning sensation on my neck. I never seen these things in my house before. I guess it found me somehow. Now im scared to go back to bed! I will post later if I have any reaction to it. This is wild! I cant believe how they can bite, and disapear so fast! I thought I was going crazy until I found him. I am getting a tingling burning sensation down my right arm just now and Im feeling quesy. Hope nothing happens! Will let you know!
