Advertisement First of all, I'm not trying to upset or offend anyone. I know this board is really for people who keep these things as pets, but I figured enthusiast are probably the best authority on this... We have started getting a bunch of these in and around the house: http://twitpic.com/2ob7p ...and I am just looking for a way to get rid of them. I have small kids (youngest one just a year) so it is not good to have these things crawling around in the living room. At the same time I don't want to overuse pesticides. Is there something that targets centipedes specifically - maybe something they don't like the smell of and will stay clear of (e.g. in the way that garlic and lime deter some species of ants)? Or if not, what (short of large amounts of termite powder) kills them?
