      I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this. This is a drawback of living in Hawaii. When it rains we have to be on the lookout for centipedes. This one was strolling across my kitchen floor a little while ago. I learned a trick from a friend and put it to practice. I grabbed a pair of scissors and cut it as it was walking. It’s been chopped up in thirds so it was longer when it was fully functional but it’s only about a third of the size of the one my husband killed last year in our bedroom. They have a nasty bite.

      Sometimes when I see one I am able to sweep it outside and call the chickens over. They love centipedes. This one was moving too quickly and I was afraid to get too close to it.

      I’m curious to know about the creep crawlers you have in your area and how you deal with them.
