I'm so over "Country Living". Too many creatures to deal with, and this is the last straw. When I let the puppies out, I turned around and thought "the storm sure left a lot of pine straw on the house". But then I could tell the "pine straw" was moving. Centipedes. Yep. Hundreds, thousands......maybe even millions for all I know. I hate them with a passion. When I was little, they'd bite me on my face while I slept. And when I woke up, everyone would laugh at my swollen lips or eyes. Oh, yeah, haha,funny,funny...good times, good times. But these little *insert bad word here* sting, and it's sometimes pretty painful. However.......I've NEVER seen this many in one place at one time. So, when I saw this, I just cried.
Welcome..To My Nightmare!
I had several kinds of roach and ant spray that didn't work. I read to use slug and snail granules, but I'm afraid the puppies will get it. Oh, and when I looked up what to do, most of the advice involved "just step on it". Really. Well, I stepped on plenty. It was like stepping on popcorn. An those were just by walking out to photograph these. By the way, I've been slapping imaginary centipedes off my legs and face and shoulders ever since and I doubt I'll ever have another good night's sleep again. Ever.
