Frequently Asked Questions About Millipedes

What are the signs of a millipede infestation?

Millipedes do not leave many signs of an infestation, making it difficult to notice when you have a problem. Typically the only way to know whether or not you have millipedes in your home or business is by seeing them scramble from one spot of shelter to the next, often in damp areas such as basements.

If you suspect that you have a millipede infestation, keep an eye out for materials that they want to eat — mulch, firewood, leaves, and other plant material — that are in various states of decomposition. Then, give our pest control team a call at High Country Pest Control.
