I had that same problem but on a larger scale. Last summer we had this "friend" take care of our animals and when it came to putting crickets in the cages he allowed many to escape. What we did was bought these little glue traps and set them up around the house. We were able to get all but 1 that stayed behind the frig and chirped like there was no tomorrow. Look for the traps at Wal Mart or Home Depot. Becareful that none of your T's get out and get stuck themselves. It would be a quick way to lose one.

If its chirping its an adult...........it will die soon anyway;)

I know it seems like they live forever though.

Do you have a cat? My cat eats the ones that get away=D

Yeah as sunnymarcie says - You need a cat:D

Alternatively use my method, hope that your escaped centipede will get them... :eek: I still can't find the 'pede, though I do occasionally find cricket corpses that have died by 'pede or cats.
