This is just a common silver fish. Yes they can sting you, I stepped on a BIG one in my bathroom last week and it felt like a beesting. From what I have heard is that they can crawl through your plumbing in your sinks and toilet.

Those are common house centipedes and are found throughout Europe, Asia and North America. They are totally harmless, except they kill spiders, which I`m not big on as the spiders kill gross flies and mosquitos. But meh, food chain and all that.

I used to work in a wine shop and a customer stepped on one (on purpose) after I asked him just to leave it alone. He felt bad afterwards when I got all mad, though. LOL

Oh yeah they sure are common here in Japan.
They don`t seem to be anything more than freakishly fast and stealthy.

They`re nasty little bastards. I had a smaller one on my wall once. I hit it with bug spray and it`s legs started falling off as it died. It took me a minute to figure out that it was legs. They were moving around like babies, I thought it had released a bunch of little ones.

It`s really sluggish for a house centipede, mine are faster. Besides, they`re good for killing other pests and are virtually harmless.

Yeah, I know (fellow scientist here). I figured it was some kind of stag beetle, I didn`t think it was venomous or a disease-carrier. And by the way, I didn`t kill it, I caught it and put it outside. This was, though, I freely admit, after my first impression of almost sh*tting myself!

@pixiechick I was just about to say the same thing! I HATE centipedes. It`s not just that they`re big and f`n ugly, it`s that they RUN. REALLY. FAST!! It`s hard to catch them! I haven`t seen many of them in Guelph, but when I was living in London, ON it was like a plague of them. Creep the bejeebers outta me.

davymid - that beetle is from family Lucanidae and it is not a roosterroach, nor a harmful animal. I doesn`t carry disease like the family Blattoidea (or order Blattaria).
Please let`s not make confusion. Not everything that looks gross it is actually gross or dirty.

vv "At home in the UK, I`m all `live and let live` when it comes to insects, but when I`m abroad I`ll hit every insect I see with my shoe."

Ha, funny you mention that... I was in Morocco a while back and was taking a shower. I felt something on my foot and looked down to find a nasty demon-spawn f*cker that looked something like this had taken up residence there...



Good job I was already in the shower, as I immediately shat myself. Well, almost.

I am not even playing with you, we have these horrible f*ckers here in Ontario. They are big and nasty! When you squish them they crunch and all of their legs keep moving. My cousin very affectionately refers to them as "Bastardasses". I found one the other day that my cat had been gnawing on; So nasty!!!

smashing an insect will cause MORE insects to come to the point of smashing, attracted by the smells of the freshly killed corpse.

Even removing the corpse doesn`t help, more insects will come even with no corpse, because of the smell that doesn`t go away that easily. You don`t feel it but they do.

Don`t kill what you don`t know.
Capture insects with a glass and a foil of paper and throw them out of your home, instead of killing them.
This is not about being respectful. It is about being WISE.

AND in case of infestation don`t improvise, call a professional Pest Control Operator.

It is genus Scutigera for sure, but I`m not 100% sure about the species (coleoptrata). That dorsal pattern doesn`t look like the usual S. coleoptrata to me. Or it could be a foreign subspecies that I don`t know of.
ANYWAY that is a useful insect, there isn`t ANY sense in smashing it.

The Scutigera Coleoptrata originated in the Mediterranean and can now be found all over the globe. Why does this link claim it is a Japanese creature? Some IAB submitters are trying too damned hard and whoever approves these links isn`t trying hard enough. Get your poo together.

Those things hunt and kill roosterroaches.

So, if you have them in your house - it would be advisable to let them live, besides, IF they bite you (not likely) it`s about as bad as an ant or a bee.

If, however, you have hundreds of them in your house, you might want to find out where your roosterroach problem is...
