FAQ - Creepy Crawlies
Creepy crawlies are insects which creep (walk slowly) or crawl (walk on four or more legs), flying insects. Bees produce honey, but can give you a nasty sting. They live in “hives”. Wasps have thinner bodies than bees, and like sweet fruit.
Centipedes are long insects which can have between 30 and 354 legs. Although centipedes can grow to be very long, Centipedes are nocturnal creatures, so during the day they’re most likely to be found in dark places like under logs and plant pots.
House centipedes rarely bite people or pets and mostly prefer trying to escape threatening situations. Their venom is potent for smaller insects such as silverfish.
