Ability to bite is contested.

I've been told that they aren't deadly, but just cause swelling.   Other people say they are safe to play with.  We used a oven mitt so that we wouldn't have to explain to Sister Smith why we got bit. There has been more of them out and about lately, probably because of the rain.

I also found out that you can survive the bite of the much more dangerous centipede (bigger and a lot meaner than millipedes).  Apparently a tourniquet is sufficient to get you to the hospital.  I'd previously heard you were dead for sure.  What a comfort.
