I have killed 3 of these recently. Never have seen them here before. S/W Austin hill Country.
?????? This one was crawling in my shop.
Can you imagine laying under a truck & having this rascal crawl across your neck?????

Whatever you do don’t eat it.

I put some glue traps down last week in the house and am already catching scorpions. Started spraying after that.

“Texas Redhead” centipede. They get big and I’ve read their bite packs a wallop

Got any Coonarses in your area? Tell them they are good eating and illegal to kill, and they'll be gone in a week.

I've been told that their bite will make the toughest of the tough whimper like Jucie Smollett!!
I've seen them but I ain't touching one..
Seen one about 12"-14" long in far wast Texas on a Aoudad hunt..

Their bite can leave a red bump as big as a decent sized orange on you and much worse if you have allergies to stings!
