Invasion! In the past we have been invaded by ants, mice, the occasional tarantula (had one in the house yesterday), but lately we have been invaded by these little goodies:
They are millipedes and they love the current weather we are having, so are breeding like crazy. Because my doors are anything but sealed, they can wander freely under my door. They are trying to get away from the wet ground and rain, and my house seems right up their alley. I'm getting 2-4 of these guys a DAY in my house. They used to kind of freak me out, but now they are so commonplace I just scoop them out of my house with my foot or my hand.
