Advertisement I've been researching possible precautions to take on the off chance I get bitten by my S. dehaani. I don't handle my centipede at all. I use long thick rose gloves and 15" tongs to feed and clean, and always do so in the bathtub in case he/she decides to make a run for it. But, I am highly allergic to many insect stings and bites -- not enough for anaphylaxis, but a recent encounter with an angry yellow jacket had me laid up for 4 days from the pain and I developed an 8" welt that around the stings. I can't seem to get a good handle on the effectiveness of an EpiPen for a centipede bite. Obviously, my doctors have no idea. Can anyone weigh in on whether this could be useful in reducing symptoms until I get to a hospital? And what info should I have on hand to help the doctors treat the bite? I'm guessing they don't get a lot of giant centipede bites out here in the middle of nowhere Michigan. Again, I do not plan to get bitten. I take extreme, if not over-the-top, precautions. This is just me planning ahead for the worst case scenario.
