Japanese House Centipede by melvynyeo Japanese House Centipede by melvynyeo
Japanese House Centipede (Scutigera coleoptrata) found resting on a leaf. The Japanese called it Gejigeji. Would you be happy to see this in your house? They are actually harmless creatures, and could be beneficial in your home as they feed on typical house pests such as flies, silverfish, termites, bedbugs, cockroaches, ants, etc!! Won't you give it a second chance? :P

We have house centipedes. They are ridiculously fast. Except for the babies. You can catch those. They are kinda terrifying.
