SFGate cites Kirby about centipedes

SFGate, a site affiliated with the San Francisco Chronicle, cited Clay Kirby in an article about centipedes being an all-natural form of pest control as they eat termites, bedbugs and cockroaches. Kirby, an entomologist and insect diagnostician with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, said instances of people being bitten by house centipedes are rare and seldom serious.
