Thanks for the article.

I think from now on I will not dig in the soil with my bare hands. So that I don't accidentally get stung

I am going to put them in my compost heap

You should be aware that some centipedes either sting or bite, IDK which, and the effect can be like a venomous spider bite. I know this firsthand because a building where I used to work was infested with centipedes and some of my co-workers got bitten and had nasty reactions similar to a brown recluse bite that required medical attention. Our workspace was in the basement of the building and was located next to a lake They ended up having to call in exterminators to get rid of them. I wish I could remember more specifics about which variety they were. If I get time I'll try to do a web search and find out.

Write on!


Won't I look good in my publicity photos when I am the leanest, meanest, most agile writing machine I can possibly be?

I was wondering if Centipedes/ Milipedes were beneficial in the garden? I seem to have an infestation of them. Just wondering if I should get rid of them? If I should how can I do it so that it doesn't harm the other insects that are good for my garden?
