House Centipede

This is a predatory House Centipede, and because you captured and released it, allowing it to enjoy its day, we are tagging this posting with the Bug Humanitarian Award.  Too often, House Centipedes found indoors wind up tagged as Unnecessary Carnage.  Thanks for your kindness to the lower beasts and to your good wishes regarding our day.

    We used to catch and release these.

    But one bit my wife tonight. She was in extreme pain, then her foot swelled up and now she’s in the hospital. From now on, any of these found in my house will die.
