Default The Worst Insect Ever! (NO PICS)

Hey guys, I just had a run in with a house centipede in the bathroom in my house (AKA "I NEARLY FUCKIN DIED!") and am looking for a bit of moral support. If you like these little shits that move fast, look creepy, climb walls, and bite, then dont bother replying XD the thing not only scared the shit outta me, but bit my cute little kitty! (poor bipity, hes so gentle and nice he didnt deserve to get bitten on the paw for gently baping at the thing... damn insect). But yeah... moral support needed, definitely some hugs also want to see what you guys all think of house centipedes.

My old apartment had the access panel in the closet behind the bathtub detached for almost 7 months before we figured out that it was (1) like that and (2) where all the house centipedes were coming from.

Not a big fan of them, but I did tend to relocate them instead of killing them. They're pretty helpful, but super creepy. Sort like a lot of IT specialists.

Lol. I dont see how they are helpfull though: sure they eat other insects but spiders arent bad enough to warrant such a satanic beast.

I've seen two in my life and yeah, they're pretty creepy. I'm surprised it bit your cat though; usually they just run away super fast.

I tend to leave those bug-eating bugs alone though, with the hope that they'll kill the gnats that sometimes appear in my home.

I leave most bugs alone, or throw them out the window, except flies.

Poor little bipity, how's his little paw?

Speaking of insects, it's been pretty bad lately here on the coast in regards to moths. They've been all over the place! Outside my door there is a good 5 just hanging right outside at any given time. Kinda weird

This is strange as I just 2 days ago saw my first of what I believe was a centipede coming out of the base board radiator right near the litter box in my bathroom.
It was tiny though at maby 4mm long but yes was quick. So this thing will grow to bite my kitty

Dude, I feel your pain. I've got all of my hobby crap in my basement so I'm often there in my free time, and I see centipedes all the time. Surprised it bit your cat, I'm surprised s/he didn't kill it before the bug was able to bite. And those things are fast too, they run like crazy don't point a laser at it or it will flee!!!

Though if they dont get in your way, I'd leave them alone. Those centipedes actually do defend your house from worse bugs like a roach infestation or at least help with it. Also they don't usually come out into light so usually you find them when you turn on the lights and get spooked by a giant centipede enjoying it's night in your humble aboad.

Buy and spray your house with IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) It won't kill them but cause them to not be able to reproduce viable young.

Default Re: The Worst Insect Ever! (NO PICS)

Crikey too many legs! The worst are flies. Especially the biting ones who might carry a disease from an animal. Also they bath in shit and then land of food. I don't want to think about it... However moths and bees are cool so the insect kingdom isn't totally forsaken.

Luckily they don't survive in the climate where i live, but i've had plenty of them around during my travels. It's probably best to just get a broom and sweep them straight out of the door if at all possible.

They're not agressive in the sense that they will attack/bit for no reason, but if you (almost) step on them, or you cat tries to claw one they'll certainly bite/string.

You should be careful with that cat though. Most species are not venomous enough to kill a human (unless allergic), but something much smaller like a cat could be killed by a few stings.

I guess you could get a pet snake to eat them, but that again, i don't see that playing nice with the cat either

lol, i hope i had enough batteries for me 445, but my 515 takes up the only other batteries that work in it so it wasnt acessable at the time. Im eventually gonna do a NUBM07E build, that should take care of 'em

Poor little bipity, how's his little paw?
hes ok, after reading it apears that their sting is similar to a bee sting, but less painfull. My other cat has been stung by a bee (he too was batting at the insect... seems like its not the smartest way to investigate somthing).

It was tiny though at maby 4mm long but yes was quick. So this thing will grow to bite my kitty
4mm? huh. This one was around 2-3", so like 5-8cm

Though if they dont get in your way, I'd leave them alone. Those centipedes actually do defend your house from worse bugs like a roach infestation or at least help with it. Also they don't usually come out into light so usually you find them when you turn on the lights and get spooked by a giant centipede enjoying it's night in your humble aboad.
Yeah, bipity is super gentle and nice, even to creepy little evil spawn of satan (and steak, you try to give him a little bit of steak and he takes a while of licking and spitting out before he eats it, its weird), so he was probably just touching it to see what it was. And yeah, they are incredibly fast, but this one wasnt terribly fast, it was probably injured or dieing already.

But yeah, they really bother me and my parents (and my brother when hes home) and since i live in minnesota, in the suburbs, we never really have infestations so the centipedes are unnescesary, and quite unwelcome XD

Normally my father sprays outside the house with insect reppellant and that stops anything from getting in. I think id prefer not to use anything in the house since we have cats and a dog, just to be safe, although i will look into that.

lol. Snakes dont go well with cats. But yeah, i dont think the house centipede is an issue in terms of a threat to my cats, it just hurts. And yeah, cats like to bap at things gently, and that is probably not much fun for insects.


Overall, we dont get many in our house, maybe 4 per year, but those are never good days. I remember one time, i was going out to dairy queen late a t night, i got into the car, and when the headlights went on, i noticed that i had walked right past a 4-5" one in my garage... scary shit. Now that i do research, i see that the ones in my house and garage are titanic in size compared to the 1.5" bodied onmes im reading about... weird. I think im gonna contact a U of M entomologist about this.
