Catch the giant centipede crawled into the house by hand without protection, the old man in the West of Vietnam made many people fear because only a small negligence is poisoned.
"I have a centipede in my house and was wondering if someone has a suggestion how to catch it (if possible alive)
No, this is not a joke... I live in Thailand, a beautiful country with some huge centipedes. One of these creatures decided to move in into my house.
As you can imagine, I'm not very happy with my 20 cm long visitor. Right now, it is locked into my "stock room" a perfect place for a centipede to hide. It is very difficult to take everything out, especially since everyone is scared to death
So the question is how to catch it. Maybe there is a way to put up a fall or something like that?" A netizen commented
Centipedes like to hide and breed within leaf litter, grass clippings, and other damp yard materials. Clear away this outdoor debris and keep it a fair distance from your house. If you store compost or firewood, move it at least 30 feet away from your home’s perimeter.
Use an expanding foam spray to seal up any gaps, cracks, and crevices around your windows, doors, siding, pipes, and wiring. Doing this will keep out not only centipedes but rodents as well. Centipedes love damp areas like bathrooms, basements, closets, and even attics; in fact, they’ll dry out and die without moisture. Invest in a dehumidifier, and install exhaust fans in your bathrooms or attic if you haven’t already done so.
Finally, if you can figure out which bugs the centipedes are feeding on and eradicate them, centipedes will move on to locations where the food supply is more dependable—perhaps your neighbor’s house! And then you can clue others into the combination of prevention and control that saved you from those frightening confrontations with the “hundred-legged worm.”
