Okay, even the thought of a house centipede gives us the heebie-jeebies. Forget the heart-stopping moment when you actually SEE one skitter out from under whatever you just moved. NO THANKS!
But according to experts, if you really can't stand them you should run the other way instead of trying to stomp on it. House centipedes kill cockroaches, termites, silverfish, and even SPIDERS
All of those creepy legs? They're there to trap all of the smaller bugs like nature's most disgusting fishing net.
