Description: Most species are brown to black in color, some species range from orange to red in color. They range from 15mm to 4in in length. Millipedes emit a foul smelling and toxic fluid that could potentially be toxic to some insects, small animals and cause blisters on human skin
Habits: Flourishing in outdoor settings where moisture and decaying organic material (grass clippings, rotting wood, mulch, unclean drains, etc.) is present, these pests can invade interior structures if their outdoor harborages are invaded by standing water.
Treatment: Treatment begins outdoors by removing places of shelter and any decaying organic materials. Sealing holes and gaps around windows and doors. Residual applications or other forms of pest control may be necessary if large populations are present.
