Millipede Pest Control
The diet of a millipede consists of damp, decaying wood and plant material. Millipedes live outdoors in areas with moisture and decaying organic material, such as grass clippings, mulches, trash, leaf litter, rotting wood, and firewood. Extremely wet or drought conditions can lead to them entering a home. Millipedes can die in a matter of days after they enter a structure. Millipedes tend to be most active at night. Millipedes measure 1-1/2 inches in diameter, are segmented with many legs, and coil up when asleep or resting. Two pairs of legs are attached to every apparent body segment of every millipede. Most millipedes have two pairs of legs attached to each apparent body segment. However, some species may be orange or red.
