The House Centipede

on May 5, 2011

This is a Nasty Creature

Here is some information regarding the house centipede that I found in my shower on Saturday morning. I am sure some of you were probably a little freaked out or just laughed about my experience.  I can laugh about it now but if I see one again I will be sure to scream!!!

I found a picture online I would like to share with you. Like this would freak anyone out! These ugly creatures live in damp, dark places and live in your drains. They feed on other insects and they are mostly nocturnal. In case you are wondering where do they come from? The mediterranean region of the world. He must have come off the boat and just crawled his way here.

When the Exterminator came to the house Saturday morning he did tell us that if you have seen one centipede there are more to follow. Not if I can help it, there won’t be anymore. We have one last venture to take care of and that is the basement. We found a fogger made by Raid that takes care of this pest and many more. Soon I will be killing them and all their nasty friends!

So this is what my husband and I did to clear the drains on Saturday evening. We went to the store and purchased 2 bottles of Foaming Pipe Snake and poured it down the bathroom sink and the tub drain and let it sit for 1 hour. Then with scalding hot water rinsed the drains for a few minutes.  Then we did the same thing for the kitchen sink.

We also used the Eco Smart and sprayed the drain pipes under the sinks.

This is last creature I want to see for a very long time.

If you have any comments, please feel free to post them.

    Those house centipedes are the creepy crawlies i saw every so often in the house i grew up in. Quick little buggers and they are easy to kill. I suggest stepping on them, then wiping the mess up. It will save you money in the long run. LOL
