  18. Cameron Silva says

    thats like some freaky canadian Centipede or something. I've never seen one like that before. The ones we have in hawaii are brown and have short legs.

  19. Dolidh Young says

    Run awaaaaaaaaay! Or get a sweeping brush and sweep it out of the house? *shudder*

  30. Shuaib khan says

    Yummy ;D

  31. John Mitchell says

    Amanda, I'm so glad I've never seen such a thing out here in Alberta.
    All we get is the normal smaller regular brown centipedes.
    I like insects, but I wouldn't like that roaming about my house!
    If it was here I'd catch it (hope it don't catch me) and my kids would love it.

  32. Shan Hacking says

    Thats bad, Yikes!

  33. Jaka Toleng says

  37. Brian Roberts says

    Cool Pic =]

  38. Tamra Bryan says

    It's so gross and yet fascinating at the same time. Look at the stripes on those legs and their segments. /shudder It needs to find its own house – far, far away from yours.

  39. Sanya Rajan says

    In 1902, C.L. Marlatt, an entomologist with the United States Department of Agriculture wrote in Circular #48 – The House Centipede: "It may often be seen darting across floors with great speed, occasionally stopping suddenly and remaining absolutely motionless, presently to resume its rapid movements, often darting directly at inmates of the house, particularly women, evidently with a desire to conceal itself beneath their dresses, and thus creating much consternation."

  48. rungtiwa chokchai says

    wow

  49. Kenneth Bentum says

    who wants to keep it as a pet?

  50. Nobilangelo Ceramalus says

    Somewhere on Google+ For Bugs there is a post from a House Centipede complaining: 'Amanda Blain You Scare Me To Death!'

    'A thing with only two legs,' it is screaming. 'Ugh … especially waking up and finding her in my bathroom…'

    'Ugh. I'm currently in "itchy humans are near me" mode.'

  51. Tuan Le says

  66. arshath zameek says

    nyc!!

  67. Gabriela Anghel says

    Imagine that the soul of one of your children or a close one is moved in one of that creature. That is only a matter of appearance and prejudicial mind. Kafka, Albert Camus and some Buddhist readings about "equanimity" and developing an "equanimous mind" made me to imagine that. Then, I was able to look in a different way to that being. There is still a long way to be able to act, feel, based on that knowledge 🙂

  68. Masab Umair says

    yes, i like this because it is one of the creation of God.

  69. M. Andrew Sprong says

    They are good are good at catching and eating mosquitoes and small flies.

  70. abu marouane insanova says

    creepy…LoL

  71. Kian Merati says

    very dangerous. I have something to make them run a way.!!!!

  72. Max James says

    oh, thanks for this post. After that I read about them, and found out that this insects are very useful for house, they kill all other insects (like flies, beetles) and really not dangerous for people. So I won't be longer kill them.
    But still… they're horrid)

  73. abu marouane insanova says

    creepy

  74. Nouhad A says

    Thanks, now I'm certain there are 3 of these behind the door waiting for the opportune moment

  75. Grant Lewis says

    I friggin hate these things almost as much as spiders…no, wait….I DO hate these things just as much as spiders!

  76. anitta fajjary says

    waw

  77. ria angelei says

    Ughh. Saw one tonight in my bathroom. GROSS. SMASHED IT.

  79. Ranjith Am says

  85. anitta fajjary says

    zzzz

  86. M. Andrew Sprong says

    I've seen centipedes you couldn't crush with your foot, and could catch and eat mice. These guys are lightweights in comparison.

  87. BENARAD AZARES says

    iiiiiii

  88. Shoshe Hosan says

    Hmm…

  89. BENARAD AZARES says

    Ahhhhhhhhh

  90. FAT?H CIRIK says

    what is this?where did bugs come from?

  91. Kian Merati says

    did u really kill one of them amanda?

  92. Roberto Abd El Rahman says

    scientific name: Scutigera coleoptrata; no problem with it.. it's absolutely not dangerous if you are not a mosquito :-))) (it eates mosquitos).
    It's also named (in italy) "madama fortuna" = lucky lady

  93. anitta fajjary says

    obviously does not really :-/
    I actually do not understand. hhehe

  94. ??? says

    ???????

  95. indu barla says

    wow! saw this kind of 1st time.. usually i see they kinda black. eww.. so creepy!!

  96. Avinash Folks says

  97. Mohamed Kurdi says

    if you take a quick glance while scrolling down the page, you will think it is an eye

  98. waqar ahmad says

    its horrible

  99. Allen St. John says

    if it naturally has less then two or more then four legs… I consider it evil and must kill it…

  100. RIZABELLE BALANG says

  103. Al Clarke says

    I don't get how this guy is going to eat a mosquito…

  104. Phuong Tran Ngoc says

    what is this :O

  105. Christopher B says

    Those are quick little buggers. I have them as well. They like cool damp areas, like crawl spaces.

  106. Tuan Le says

    look like good taste

  107. zac nunn says

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF IS THAT THING

  108. imtiaz immi says

    akhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  109. Jason Blanchard says

    When we moved to GA, we discovered the house centipede and it scared the bejeezus out of my wife. I informed her that their mission is to eat spiders, so she reluctantly allows them to live when one appears.

  110. martha gilreath says

    ohhhh no!!!!!! set that thing on fire and then go to war with it like that dude from the movie aracnaphopbia did!

  111. Gabriela Anghel says

    Imagine that the mind-soul of one of your close one (someone that you love) is moved in one of that creature. It is only a matter of appearance and prejudicial mind. Reading Kafka- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Metamorphosis for changed, different appearances, Albert Camus for looking alike and still be criminalized and killed for mental-psychic differences and some ideas about "equanimity" or developing an "equanimous mind"; made me now to imagine that. I was able then to look in a different way to that Being. It is still a long way to be able to act-feel, based on that knowledge. I bet artificial intelligence (robots) would not have problems understanding, balancing feeling and acting for a symbiotic life of all species, based on gathered knowledge and reasoning.:-)

  112. olivia ferreira says

    arrr

  122. rocky gado says

    holy cow. that's one terrible centipede. :/

  123. Javed Iqbal says

    Where does this insect exist and what size is it?

  124. Denny Sanders says

    Centipedes and wasps…..I kill them on sight. I know it's wrong. Maybe it's an innate,primal response.

  125. Patrick Stones says

    looks interesting, not that I want anywhere near me though

  126. Fernando Vazquez says

    Ugh, I hate these things! They pop up all the time here in the outskirts of Chicago! They are creepy!

  127. Kyla Lett says

    Eww

  128. John Palmer says

    Aw, poor little guy, did you get a glass and some card and catch him? Just put him at the end of your garden and tell him off.

    I must admit however that I've never seen a bug like that before, we don't have bugs like that in the UK I don't think, at least I've never seen one.

    😀

  129. Elijah Gonzalez says

    Scutigera coleoptrata I usually get about 3 or 4 a month here in Philadelphia. They are pretty common and nasty.

  155. Chris Morales says

  156. Matthew Clark says

  157. tammy mohamed says

    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  159. Ivan Martinez says

    +Amanda Blain I'll trade you the centipedes for the mosquitos we get down here in Florida, they bite :/

  160. Dpac Shakur says

    Blargh! I have those and they like my bathtub! :/

  161. Harry chahal says

    Nice pic dear…

  162. Raven Compton says

  163. Hanley Wilcoxen says

  164. Glenn Grey says

    Hi Amanda…when you see this insect ever…a little 'humor' will help your issue…like…Knock Knock…who's there/…Santa/…Santa who/…Centipede all over the Christmas tree… ; – )

  165. Davion F says

    More like a spiderpede

  166. Taylor Banks says

    That is, without a doubt, the scariest looking centipede I've ever seen.

  167. Nick Markwell says

    I agree with +Davion F. Spiderpede.

  168. Ian McNeill says

    i remember seeing those things in my house years ago. those things move fast and when you see them bolt by you you want to kill it with fire!

  169. Fábio Neves says

    kill him!

  170. BOBY GEE says

    i have nver dat see day, b4 ,in life

  171. Elisanna Hernandez says

    omg

  172. Alliiee Jeetaaiimmee says

    miam :3

  173. mercy miles says

    its appearance may not matter bt what matters is its dangerous part of life!

  174. Stacy S says

    just let your sink with the disposal drip (Anti-Frozen Pipes Drip) and in the morning turn on the disposal. They are attracted to the moisture.

  175. Damelza Aung says

    amazing :O

  176. Christopher Munnings says

    that's mess up right their.

  177. Eric Ochy says

    So scary

  178. gregorio martinez says

    hello amanda

  179. Idris Guerbuez says

    u r lucky that this guy didn't sting u…

  180. Phiroz M says

    you gave me goose bumps ehehe

  181. khawaja danish says

    yup

  182. Chris Perez says

    My wife and daughter hate these things! I don't blame them. When I first moved to PA and saw these, they gave me nightmares. But I was only 9. Anyways, these bugs are one of the good guys… 😉 They eat other bugs. So they're really keeping down the bug population in your home =D

  183. DAMIANA ARLINDA says

    nana

  184. Amar deep says

    rare species in india,.,.

  185. James Cannon says

    I have the same unwanted guest!

  186. Lisa Bimmerz says

    That's pretty creepy looking +Amanda Blain – but if I had to, I'd choose this over all the damn spiders that linger about throughout my house. ^shudder^

  187. Xhamira D. says

    On my way home yesterday there was an ugly spider on my windshield…on the inside! Ugh…Had creepy crawlies the rest of the night.

  188. Angela Resseguie says

    I have had these things in my shower before…they are really fast and SUPER creepy because they have such long legs and look like a spider…I didn't know they ate other bugs…may have to consider just relocating them instead of demolishing them

  189. Maraba Lwatingu says

    this is an environmenta matter…………………………. imargin some one saying the same about u

  190. Paul Heller says

    I find these now and then stuck in the bathroom sink, and I relocate them outside (grab 'em with a wadded-up tissue). I'm sure they pop right back inside but aside from being really creepy looking they're harmless and they do eat nastier buglets.

  191. Rebecca Schofield says

    Bleck. I don't like things like this either! Now I'm in "Itchy bugs are on me" mode, too…..

  192. Gökhan TOPALO?LU says

    This is not forty feet…

  193. Brandon Lashaway says

    ur dirty

  194. Aaron Brown says

    We have these in Pennsylvania too, I have a rather overgrown yard so I get a lot of different bugs that find their way into my home. I see these on a regular basis, good thing about them is they eat other bugs, much like a spider. While neither is on my, "I would like to invite over for tea" list, they are not on my "crush you with a paper towel" list. They do more good then harm, and by harm, I mean only to my psyche!

  195. rasel feni says

    What is this…

  196. Dan McGuire says

    Gross. I've managed to kill about 7 of these guys. Creepy and verrry fast. You have to kill them in the first strike or they're gone(then they come back to plot and watch you sleep).

  197. yousif hussain says

    hhhhhhh

  198. Gonzaloc Mansilla says

    Ok

  199. ???? says

    yuuuuckkkkk..

  204. Christopher Thesner says

    ooooh heeeeelll to the noooo!
    Its deffinitely leggs that make a spider scary.

  205. Lila Carey says

    if i saw that thing i think i would cry!

  206. Ed Luke says

    I take it that's a close-up. If I saw that in my room, I reckon I'd be getting the shotgun out…

  207. Otis Ritch says
