And then there were seven

Yes, seven centipedes. And this one was climbing the wall. So much for the spray that kills ants and cockroaches working on the multi-legged beasties. And so much for the photo I wanted to take because Julien was already doing a smashy-dance on the critter before I could say stop.

I forgot to include in my number post about how many roaches we have seen here. Well, now, let me say five. One of them was on the mosquito net, on the INSIDE with us one morning, hanging precariously over Julien's head. Average roach size: an inch and a half. Number of roaches the roach traps have caught? Zero. But the one under the sink did catch a milipede. :-(
