Frequently Asked Questions
Are Millipedes Dangerous?
Millipedes are generally considered nuisance pests and are not dangerous to humans. They do not bite or sting, and their defensive secretions are not harmful to humans unless they come into contact with sensitive skin or eyes. Millipedes are ecologically beneficial as they help break down organic matter. However, their presence in large numbers can be unsettling and may indicate underlying moisture issues in a home.
Why do I have a Millipede problem?
Millipedes are attracted to properties that offer them shelter, moisture, and an ample supply of decaying organic matter. They may enter homes and buildings in search of warmth and moisture, particularly during periods of heavy rain or drought. Overgrown vegetation, cluttered outdoor spaces, and improperly sealed doors or windows can attract millipedes to your property.
Where will I find Millipedes?
Millipedes can be found both indoors and outdoors. Outside, they may be found in damp, dark areas such as under rocks, leaf litter, or woodpiles. Inside, they may be found in dark, moist areas like basements, bathrooms, and crawl spaces. They are more likely to be encountered during the evening hours when they are most active.
How do I get rid of Millipedes?
To get rid of millipedes, first identify the areas where they are congregating. Implement proper sanitation practices, reduce clutter, and eliminate moisture issues in and around your home. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows to prevent millipedes from entering. Use insecticides or sticky traps as needed. For persistent infestations, consider hiring a professional pest control service.
How can I prevent Millipedes?
Preventing millipedes involves maintaining a clean and clutter-free property, addressing moisture issues, and sealing any entry points. Regularly clean both inside and outside your home, paying special attention to potential hiding spots. Repair any water leaks, control humidity levels, and seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows.

What are Millipedes
Millipedes are elongated, many-legged arthropods belonging to the class Diplopoda. They have cylindrical, segmented bodies with two pairs of legs per body segment. Millipedes can vary in size and color, but most are brown or black. They are detritivores, feeding on decaying organic matter such as leaves, wood, and plant matter. Millipedes are slow-moving creatures and, when threatened, will coil into a tight spiral for protection.
