House Centipede

5671  Hi, my name is Jane, I am in Ottawa, Ontario I found this guy n my kitchen, it’s spring with warm dry weather. I think it came in from the yard on a blanket. It looks similar to the house centipede but not sure. It’s about an inch long with very long striped antennae-type “legs”. Thoughts?

This is indeed a house centipede (Scutigera coleoptrata); see for more detailed information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
