Ewwwww Centipedes, something else I can't stand...

And these are especially creepy.  Google house centipedes for photos.  I refuse to post a photo here because I'll never come back to the thread.

Ok Larissa, I did google them, and OMG,  don't blame you, not something I want to see again.  They are really creepy looking.  BUT on the other hand they do keep the other insects to a minimum, right.

I have a garter snake living under my house, and for him I am grateful since he eats these nasty bugs. lol.  You want to see a picture of him? I named him Spot.

I'd love a photo of Spot!  And Pam, I suppose that's a bright side, but I'd much rather have a Spot living here to take care of that for me.  What gets me is our ridiculous cats... All ready to hunt their toys, but though they watch the centipedes like hawks, they don't really go.after them.

You should have my pit, she plays with them til they just roll over and die, spiders, bugs, moths, no matter.  She drives them crazy and they just curl up and die.  So funny to watch her do it.

I'm sorry for freaking you guys out, I didn't mean for the picture to be so BIG:laugh:
He was actually no bigger than a finger, and you probably have some but won't see them because they will "run" as soon as they see you.

He's so cute!   :laugh:  I love looking at snakes, I just don't want them in the house.  :D

Just like I love watching wasps/bees but absolutely flip if they get too close to me.

Oh no Debbie, the photo is not freaky, but knowing that one was living under my house or in my house would absolutely creep me out.  Cute snake though it might be.

Yep, my pit "Shila" must have gotten hold of something, cause she was throwing up this morning and though not sick anymore, she is lying around like she doesn't feel well. But you let a squirrel hit the ground and she is off like a rabbit. LOL.  If she doesn't act better by tomorrow gonna have to take her to the vet
