Good morning! How about a gross bug to wake you up and get you going?
These things grow in other parts of the south and maybe other areas but they’re definitely here and I’ve never seen one before we found this one.
Orkin calls them Texas Red Head Centipede. The Dallas Zoo calls them Texas Giant Centipede. One thing for sure, it’s in Texas, it has a red head, it’s giant and it’s a centipede so they’re both correct!
And, they sting . . and, it hurts. No, I didn’t get stung . . yet, but I read about it. You can bet that since I seem to get stung by everything, it’s just a number of days til I do get stung.
Do you remember those things that made creepy crawly bugs way back . . when I was a kid . . 35 or 40 years ago? It kinda looks like one of those. It looked plastic and shiny . . it didn’t even look real . . but it was.
Just another thing to watch out for around here . .
