Re: Things to see, places to stay on Oahu, roaches

Just sent a reply re: roaches. Don't know for sure, but the centipedes are probably not native either, based on the fact that the Islands are the most isolated land mass in the world. Almost anything that got there without specific human intervention arrived via the wind or the ocean currents (although I must admit that I can visualize a centipede, desperately clinging to a coconut washed up on a Hawai'ian beach!
