Types of millipedes

Millipedes are a more uncommon creepy-crawler, but can leave many homeowners feeling uneasy when discovered on their property. Because of the many legs, they are often called ‘thousand-leggers’.Often lumped together with centipedes, these pests don’t bite or sting unlike their multi-legged neighbors and at worst, become a nuisance and can infest without proper treatment.

Treatment

How we get rid of millipedes

As millipedes typically make their homes in damp, soil-centric areas, disrupting and removing these areas is key to getting rid of them. Crack, crevice, and spot treatment are key. Treatments are focused treatments in areas of high moisture and areas heavy in decaying organic matter and mulch. Our experts will also utilize a pesticide designed for lawn and soil applications to combat any chance of infestations.

Our pest experts take a tailored approach when treating your property and work to ensure that your concerns are addressed and your home is protected, inside and out. We’re dedicated to providing you with peace of mind and making sure you enjoy your home.
