House Centipede

Scutigera coleoptrata


Some sort of centipede. About 1-1 1/2 in long. Striped, mostly brown and black. Long slender legs.


Dark somewhat moist areas.


Find them everywhere in Korea. On walls, under grates. This one was under a sand bag. The move in a weird jittery motion that makes their legs look like a wave. Creeps the heck outa me.
