Millipede

Millipedes (1" - 2" long) have a hard worm-like body lined with two pairs of legs for each body segment. They feed on decaying organic matter in moist areas under shrubs, leaves and in lawns. Millipedes become annoying house pests as they enter homes during weather extremes (ex. dry weather, heavy rains).

Eliminating potential harborages next to or near the foundation is critical to long term relief from millipedes. Items such as thick landscape mulch, leaf letter, heavy ground cover, and items on the ground, should be removed.

In the case of millipede "migrations," where thousands of millipedes are involved, the services of a professional are usually needed.
