    Jeez, I just killed a mother of a Centapede! I was surprised because they usually don't get THAT big this early in the season, I usually don't even see one until at least late May at the earliest, usually I get small ones, it's very rare to get one this big. I guess the mild winter we had has thrown the whole system out of whack.
    I hate these damn things! The one I just killed was about an inch and a half in length, was dark brown, and ran REALLY fast! [​IMG] Not fast enough for my big ass can of RAID though. [​IMG]
    It's fun watching them die with RAID, they sqirm all over, and they're legs fall off as the RAID siezes they're nervous system! [​IMG] I know, i'm sick aren't I? [​IMG]
    But, better them than waterbugs! I am absolutly petrified of them! [​IMG]
    Yep, it's Spring time again boys and girls, time to go medieval(sp) on they're ugly asses!

    Be glad it wasn't an Amazonian centipede. Those things reach 14 inches and look real disgusting.

    Ants. I get ants. Tons and tons of them.

    Forget the raid, use a good long-lasting bug bomb and any time one of the little bastards even steps foot in your house it, and all its little chums, will die horribly.

    When I was young I used to sit on the ground, and with my magnifying glass, pop ants, eeeek, even beetles weren't safe from my primitive laser beam, zap zap zap, little puffs of smoke where insects used to be, I was such a nice little boy...
    But spiders always scared the crap out of me, I was chased by a humongous spider when I was a kid...[​IMG]
    Centipedes are creepy, but so slooow moving, even my scream of fear at seeing one is in slow motion aaaaaaarrrrgghhh (sounding like a broken down record)! Oh no that centipede is slowly coming to get me, by next week it will be in my room, heeeelp!!!

    I was thinking of getting a couple of those devices I saw advertised on tv that plugs into the wall, and drives away just about every pest known to man.

    Do they actually work though?
