That is a very common house centipede:
they are actually very good to have around because they are good predators of other pest insects. This is the first you have seen?!? you must live in a totally bug free environment! No arthropods allowed at Meno's!
thanks for the link dj. i've never seen one before. the only things that i've seen lurking about the house a spiders, daddy long legs or barn spiders. other than that, whatever crawls around outside, stays outside.
Hey DJ and Meno. Definately one ugly bug. I looked it up and yes it is a centipede, "scutigera" is the name of the type. Here in good ol New Mexico, we have a wide range of bugs, from ten inch centipedes "No shit", to all sorts of scorpions and spiders. Again, like DJ said, it's another bug with no serious poison, unless your allergic. Now with centipedes in NM, there usually pretty thick, kinda redish/yellow with black blocks on the outer skin, with really thick short legs. More..These are called "scolopendra viridis". All I have to say is, be glad you have the ones you do and not the ones we have. The ones in NM have been known to bight, which somewhat numbs the skin after a spout of serious pain, then the centipede digs all of it's legs into your skin. Removal takes something with a very hot tip, running it along the back of the centipede, forcing it to remove it's legs from your skin. This is not common and like DJ said, most centipedes are just looking for food, then they will be on there way. Less..
but i've lived in new mexico almost all my life and never have seen one until this morning. as for the other centipede, the scolopendra viridis, i've never seen one of those either, and hope i never do, but have heard of them. i have seen a silver fish here and there, but not a whole lot.
I live here in New Mexico as well....southern part...hello neighbor
OBTW, poisonous - yes to the degree it can kill another insect by injecting venom into it. Generally incapable of biting through the layers of human skin. If somehow it managed to, it might result in an uncomfortable blemish in your skin that will quickly heal. Don't kill it unless you want other less desirable insects in your house! If you have an allergy to centipedes then you might consider exterminating them otherwise let nature take it's natural course...
good. i don't need it stinging the kids. they would freak out! lol
Ugly insect ...very efficient against other insect though !
In some countries those are called "lunch".
Who cares. Grab the bug spray.
cats love to eat those things
daaaaaamn. gives me the heebie jeebies.
With long legs like that you sure it's not a model.....hahahaha
Its a Komodo Dragon, for gods sake dont touch it and call a reptile handler ;-)
A common household 'thousand legger'. For some reason, you tend to see them around areas where moisture is present. Creepy, but harmless.
You are correct,We have the same insect here in the north east pa. del. nj ny.etc.
Its the dreaded ball weevil, harmless to women but causes men to have a terminally itchy crotch!
Kill it, quick!!!!
I get these damned ugly fuckers too. After the the Potato Bug (AKA: Jerusalem Cricket) there are the ugliest, creepiest damned bugs around.
It's called a Xenomorph Dischronificator, and they try to crawl up your butt while you sleep and live in the colon, until they grow to the size of a bowling ball and rip their way out of your chest.
this ugly creature just makes me go crazy !!! i hateeeee it !!! i always buy that bug-killer spray can everytime to go for grocery shopping !!! i dont wanna miss the chance of not killing them !! and yea.... they tend to sneak into places with more of moisture !! but i know all of their hideouts in my house now...;) .... so no escape from that killer spray u ugly creatures !!!
I dont think it takes an English teacher to recognize irony ;-)
Good call. Nice bugs Meno.
Look at it this way nemo, little bugs don't eat big bugs so u have nothing to fear! :D
That is your friend. Those centipedes will eat all the little nasties (ants, silverfish etc.) and are completely harmless to humans. I find them in the sink from time to time and now leave a paper towel draped into the sink at night so they can get back out.
maybe i should do that. thanks for the idea!
I never saw a centipede that looked like that.
oooo no ... i see that fucking every week em my home,im so scaree. i did killed too or more ,another day i done w/ one more big then that last week iam move to another apt. i hope there is not... thanks for the video w/ the coments let me know about.
sorry scary, im not very good in english.
Ha ha. its a house centipide i had them in my house before... they kill spiders... they can sting you its no worse then a bee sting, they are not poisenous to humans, only to other insects. Just kill them
