Don't squish me I'm your friend

I am the  innocent victim of mistaken identity! I may look very wiry and wriggle a lot but I am not a wireworm!  In fact I am not any type of worm at all, I am proud to be a centipede.  Well to be precise my family name is Geophilomorpha.

One of my problems is that I like to curl up inside a dark hole. Sometimes the dark homes may be in the middle of a potato.  When you dig up your potato and find me inside you automatically think I have made the hole.

The evidence against me is purely circumstantial. I am more likely to have eaten the pest that nibbled on your potato as I a meat eater.

So you see I am really a gardener's friend. When you see me don't squash me just  just let me wriggle back into the soil and I will chew my way through some of your enemies.
