When I was younger, a wee one, I got bit by what looks like the one in the first photo. About a foot long or close to it. They fucking hurt, but the video game rules.

I saw one of those bitches take down a bat.

For some reason they don't bother me. Go figure.

Just Saturday night I saw one in my basement! My kids and I were playing THE MOVIES by ACTIVISION. And we spotted one on the wall. We spent the rest of the evening tearing apart the office looking for it, all of with some sort of weapon. We never found it. I have not been down there since.

What kinds of climate do those big bloody centipedes thrive in anyway? We don't have anything like that here in the UK, at least to the best of my knowledge. (We do, however, have big wolf spiders to contend with: my house was infested with them last month. But they're nothing compared to the kind of spiders you find in the Southern hemisphere.)

Cheers,
Paul

House centipedes? The little ones? They're like Mantis' right? Harmless, eating more harmful pests.

They're doing you a favor Wallace.

Silverfish and cockroaches. Can't stand the little fuckers. Silverfish'll eat anything, and apparently cockroaches are clean animals, but when I was a kid my parents' house was filled with the blighters. One night, my mother apparently found me in my cot, covered in cockroaches; she grabbed me and ran out the house, staying with my grandparents until my dad cleared the house out.

Did you live in an apartment with a bloke named Joe?

Holy Christ man! That is terrifying!

Dude, he's doing you a favor, Buster. Kill him and you got bedbugs biting, fucking mites chewing on shit, roaches turning your place into Joe's Apartment...

Silverfish, did I mention they eat silver fish and and those ugly transparent spiders.

Let it be Wallace. Learn to live with your differences. Your neighbors have had to deal with you for years. Peace is possible.

I worked in a ceramics plant for 8 months and there were always silverfish by the kilns.

Alright Will, since I am so deeply in love with you I will let it be.

But it scares the crap out of me. Especially when it scatters about. Faster than a Cheetah!

Shit. So, you are right. Go figure!



House centipedes (Scutigera) are common arthropods with long, flattened, segmented bodies with one pair of legs per segment. The house centipede is up to 1 1/2 inches long and has 15 pairs of very long, almost thread-like, slender legs. Each leg is encircled by dark and white bands. The body is brown to grayish-yellow and has three dark stripes on top.

Though house centipedes are found both indoors and outdoors it is the occasional one on the bathroom or bedroom wall, or the one accidentally trapped in the bathtub, sink, or lavatory that causes the most concern. However, these locations are not where they normally originate. Centipedes prefer to live in damp portions of basements, closets, bathrooms, unexcavated areas under the house and beneath the bark of firewood stored indoors. They do not come up through the drain pipes.

House centipedes feed on small insects, insect larvae, and on spiders. Thus they are beneficial, though most homeowners take a different point-of-view and consider them a nuisance. Technically, the house centipede could bite, but it is considered harmless to people.

House centipede control consists of drying up and cleaning, as much as possible, the areas that serve as habitat and food source for centipedes. Residual insecticides can be applied to usual hiding places such as crawl spaces, dark corners in basements, baseboard cracks and crevices, openings in concrete slabs, under shelves, around stored boxes, and so forth. For more information on insecticides please see Insecticides for Indoor Use. Centipedes discovered outdoors should not be controlled.

You haven't lived until you've seen a monkey fight a dog. With a pencil.

Or so Miller and I were once told.

This thread is seriously giving me the heebee-jeebees! :eek:

When I was young, I was terrified of spiders... these days, they don't both me at all. But fuck, I don't think I'll ever be able to tolerate centipedes, millipedes, googaplexpedes, etc. etc.

Good because killing Spiders is considered very bad luck in some cultures, I haven't killed one since I was 5 or 6..I also got kicked outta Tiger Cubs for defending Spiders.

I know that *fear* of something is a phobia... what is it called when you *hate* something? Because I fucking HATE insects, also arachnids, also whatever-the-fuck- centipedes are. I despise all these fuckers and do not understand what their purpose on earth is besides being a nuisance to my existence. I suppose bees are all right because they're kind of fuzzy and polinate flowers, etc. and of course lady bugs and butterflies are delightful and lovely and I see no reason to elimnate them, but goddammit how I hate the rest: files, mosquitos, spiders, ticks, cockroaches, mites, gnats -- all those bitches must die, and like right now, man.
