Comment on House Centipede – Scutigera coleoptrata by Matt.

House Centipede - Scutigera ColeoptrataWhen we moved into our current residence, we had a booming population of daddy-long-legs’ and ants. After a couple years of that, we noticed an occasional house centipede. A couple of years after that, no more daddy-long-legs or ants, and TONS of house centipedes !

I looked them up on the internet some time ago, and developed an “opinion” of them similar to yours – they’re kinda creepily-fascinating, a bit handy to have around as other-insect-control, and not too scary or annoying once you get used to them.

We pretty much pay them no mind now – we’re not “infested”, we just see one on the ceiling or wall once in a while, and go “hey little buddy – back to the basement, please” 🙂
