Centipedes!


Recommended Posts

Mostly you just see the millipedes, which are harmless things. But avoid the big centipedes. Their bite is nasty. Their venom can even cause the tissue to decay around the area bitten., and I've seen scars on upcountry Thais from the bites. Ignore the millipedes, but avoid the centipedes.

I also saw a few scorpions when I lived in the lower north. They avoided me and I avoided them.

Got stung by one of the little scorpions, bastard!  Hit my finger opening a BBQ briquet bag.  I had checked but the little shithead was in the folds of the bag.  Hurt like hell for 2 days, then tingled for 3.  Didn't stop the BBQ though but needed a lot of cold beer (for the finger guys).
