A new radio progamme today, on Centipedes and Millipedes
Centipedes are night-hunters of creepy-crawly insects, so they're good for the gardener...
Millipedes on the other hand, will have your young seedlings and soft bits of things like carrots, given half a chance. So it pays to be able to tell them apart.
Small millipede. Not a good idea to pick them up, as they exude a nasty cyanide-based defense chemical.
