Bug Invasion

Centipedes are, by far, the creepiest bugs that I have ever seen in my house.  It's got to do with all those legs, and how they're able to propel the critter up the bathroom wall at record speeds; and how, when smashed, all the little legs go flying off and scatter across the floor.  They send shivers up my spine every time.


  1. Have you seen any earwigs up there?? THAT is one crazy looking bug.

  2. Yes, I have seen them, and I agree. But they're small enough I can handle squishing them myself. Centipedes are rather large...and leggy...

  3. We had an epic centipede experience a few years ago while living in the basement level of an apartment complex (I think they like cool and damp). My husband met a monster (5", at least) in the bathroom in the middle of the night. He tried killing it, but it wouldn't die. He threw it in the bathtub, and turned on the water, and it swam around for 10-15 minutes (he woke me up to show me)! We left it there, and it was dead in the morning. They are really fast, too.
