This was the first of several films I put up on my return from the Far East of Russia in 2006. I still had a very small memory card and so there is unfortunately still very little footage – which was galling as the trip was so amazing. It was at this time I started looking for solutions to make the videos longer.
On the subject of these centipedes one could write rather a lot. They are certainly quite alarming creatures to find you are sharing a room with, but the people who have them in their houses don’t like them being killed, claimingthat if they were not there the problems with cockroaches or even more poisonous spiders would be far worse. All theysuggest is to check the bed before you get in it and check your shoes before putting them on. Even if they crawl over you while you sleep, they say, you won’t be bitten if you don’t move on them. Your choice!
Personally in Russia I batted my room mate Scooties, but I did manage to tolerate them in a recent visit to France, and nothing bad happened. There were lots of insects in the French place, so I am not sure that they deserve their reputation of doing good work against all the other invertebrates…
