Ok, for a while I figured "spiders and centipedes are preditors that kill pest bugs, so leave them alone".


The batards went too far last night.

I killed 11 centipedes on the walls and cieling of my bedroom at about 3 AM last night.

I would let them run but hte bastards have a habit of getting above the bed by the cieling fan and then falling off onto the damn bed.

Tonight ... genocide.

Where the hell do you live? Remind me to never come there.

If I had a centipede fall off the ceiling on to my bed, I'd be in a mental ward for the rest of my life.

Supersoaker filled with diesel and propane torch duct taped to the bottom. Also cuts down on heating bills.

You need to bug bomb your house and fill any cracks with expandable foam.

Use Ortho Sevin Dust. Be careful with it- follow all directions and cautions. It kills all invertibrates- bees, etc., friendly or pest.

Once a month a centipede will get into the house. Those things are disgusting and fast as hell! They know exactly which way to run to get away too, freaks me out...

DDT or Diazanon.

Unfortunately, you cannot buy either of them.

Spiders and such are hard to kill, since they do not drag their bodies when they walk.

I use Spectracide which has pyretherin. This is a good chem that is a general purpose killer of just about anything. It seems to do well around the ranch, as we don't have spiders or webs, anywhere.

Maybe a pro will pipe in with something better.

I'll snap some pics of the aftermath from last night later.


Not only do I have to be creeped out by the little bastards, now I have to clean their remains off of my walls and ceilings.

I just read somewhere that they dislike dry conditions and usually stay where there's humidity, so my new plan is tomorrow while at work I'm going to close the dehumidifier up in the bedroom and run it on high all day while I'm at work. That bedroom should be brittle by the time I get home.

Since this IS a firearms site...Gunscrubber! The stuff kills 'em so fast, it's almost magical.
