Centipedes are not considered deadly but can give a very painful bite. All centipedes have a certain amount of venom that may cause some people an allergic reaction to the venom. This is the main reason why you should not handle a centipede. Your body's sensitivity to the centipedes' natural defenses may vary between people. All centipedes should be considered dangerous, so take precautions.
