Comment on House Centipede – Scutigera coleoptrata by Geraldine White.

House Centipede - Scutigera ColeoptrataSometimes we might think a critter is cool because they serve a beneficial service of ridding our homes or apartments of other annoying pests. As true as that is that is not what makes them creepy. What makes them creepy is that after a while they come in uncontrollable numbers and go anywhere and everywhere.I usually steam my food and since I have been doing that, I have noticed an increase in the number of times in a day that I encounter these critters. I usually can recognize a centipede when I see them but my exterminator told me when I asked him about what I thought and still think are caterpillars. He said caterpillars are green and what I was showing him was dark, almost black and looks like a worm with very short legs which to me resembles a caterpillar. In any event I see these bothersome annoying critters everywhere in my ground floor apartment.
