Comment on House Centipede – Scutigera coleoptrata by JonC.

House Centipede - Scutigera ColeoptrataI’m not sure what the weird white stuff was, maybe it thought your house could use some insulation work? :D I haven’t seen a Scutigera Coleoptrata egg sac/web thing before and couldn’t find pictures anywhere so I don’t know what to say.

Yeah their legs are very fragile and will just pop off. I’m pretty sure that’s beneficial to them. They can do okay without a few of them. If you use sticky traps it’s not uncommon to find a couple legs and no centipede.

I’ve never had them run out AT me, just past me. They they are night time hunters and supposedly just hang out on the walls and wait until an unfortunate bug wanders by and lasso them with their antennae.

If you see it in the light it’s probably going to be running for safety. They probably don’t recognize you as a danger, but more as just a giant object. It’d be kind of like us walking up next to a giant redwood tree and going ‘Boo!’ and then having the tree smack us with a broom.
