Basically, for this achievement you need to shoot all the mushrooms on the level (3 hits each) before you completely destroy the centipede and start a new wave. Here's some tips that'll help you finish this a bit easier:
1> Remember the centipede will drop a mushroom for each segment you kill - shooting the centipede will hinder you. It's hard to avoid completely, but it's best to let it run free. This avoids creating new mushrooms, but also ensures that when it gets to the bottom it's all one big centipede and not a bunch of little ones making it hard to dodge.
2> Start at the bottom on one side and work your way in from the edges. The centipede will near the bottom faster each time it gets blocked, so clearing mushrooms from the edges slow its descent. Clearing the mushrooms from the bottom will stop it going crazy bouncing around when you need to be dodging it.
3> Kill spiders as soon as you can to avoid them killing you when you're busy working on mushrooms, but be careful not to miss and hit the centipede.
4> As it nears the bottom, if you want it to be smaller, you can trim it without creating a bunch of extra mushrooms, but be careful not to completely destroy it or get it down to just one segment, finishing the wave, or speeding it up. This can be done by shooting it when it's close to you, and holding the fire button down. Hopefully, the first segment creates a mushroom and each segment after that is blocked, running down, into your next shot. Just remember to let up on the fire button before it's all dead, or you'll trigger the next wave.
5> Once it gets to the bottom, additional segments spawn, making your life harder. Try to avoid this and divide your attention to mushrooms and dodging. If you die, no big deal, the centipede will respawn at the top and you can destroy a few more mushrooms in peace.
