Comment on House Centipede – Scutigera coleoptrata by Melissa Mohr.

House Centipede - Scutigera ColeoptrataThanks for the info and pictures of house centipedes! The house I live in right now is the first place I’ve ever encountered these bugs-I think because its very dry where I live. Consequently I’ve only once seen one of these guys outside the bathroom once, and even then it was in the hallway about 2 feet from the bathroom door. Since they’re beneficial and rarely seen (I probably see one in a month) I let them live. Remember being in early elementary school and being required to take a friend with you to the bathroom? Now my husband and I refer these guys as “bathroom buddies”
