Attack of the killer Centipedes
    #4324819 - 06/22/05 03:06 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I walked into my apartment last night at like 2 in the morning and saw a big dirty centipede at least 4 inches long sitting on my kitchen counter. I was disgusted but determined to kill it, so I turned around to grab a paper towel and the fucker disappears. I look around for a minute and then see him scurry like a cockroach under my stove. Those things are fucking fast. Anyway.. is there anyway traps you can set out for these things, I want to call this fucker out one on one but I can't find him. I can just imagine sitting on my couch all stoned and having this thing start crawling on me, I would freak the fuck out, or have it crawl in my mouth while I sleep. I won't be at ease until I exterminate this big bastard.

Well at least it will help kill any other bugs you have in your apt :wink:

Centipedes are carnivorous.

I don't know of any way to trap them, though. You just gotta catch them out in the open :frown:

I got the chills just reading that. Anything with more than 2-4 legs is not ok in my book.

Set up a sting operation.

Stick a pin through a cockroach in the middle of your kitchen floor. Then get stoned and wait.

I think it's kind of IMPOSSIBLE to mistake a centipede for a silverfish...

One is small and silver. The other is long, with many legs, and red.

I had a similar incident with a spider a few weeks ago.  The trick is, when you see them, don't take your eyes off them, or they run with their zillion legs to safety.  Back up slowly and find something to kill them with.  Or better yet, step on the fucker before it has a chance to retreat  :evil:

If you ever do find one crawling on you, DON'T smack it or brush it off wildly! It's legs, or the tips of the legs, can stick in your skin and cause a reaction.

The trick is to GENTLY brush them in the DIRECTION they are walking. They should brush off easily like that. If you do it in the wrong direction, those legs will latch right into your skin :wink:

I'm sorry, did you suggest "gently" brushing off a 4 inch long demon with 100 legs that happens to be strolling along your arm?

I prefer the "scream like a fucking maniac and wave my arms wildly" approach. Gentle has never come into the equation.

There are GIANT centipedes in some parts of the world that can grow to over a FOOT long.

This one is from the Amazon:
