David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. My photographic interest include Travel, the Natural World, Landscapes, and Photographic Techniques. I try to include information for each image as to where, when, why and how the image was processed. Most of the images are available for purchase -- either as prints or rights managed (Clicking on an image brings you to the ShepArt Studio Team Site). Comments about the images or this site are always welcome. DJM

More Bugs.

I keep finding these crawling “house centipedes” around the house. Like spiders, I know they are supposed to be a good thing eating other insects and silverfish, but ….

    Do these creepy things bite :( GOD i keep finding them in my ROOM not cool im freaking out!!! I have my hubby kill them with bug killer spray stuff they are not welcome!! DO THEY BITE????

    • David Mathre says:

      My understanding is that they do not bite. Like spiders they go after other insects. I don’t have a problem with ants or stink bugs in the house anymore.

      • David Mathre says:

        Fully grown adults can be about 2 inches long, with 15 legs on each side. My macro images may make them look larger. I don’t like them in my bedroom, but don’t think they bite — they only go after other insects in the house.
