Millipedes are an outdoor pest which will occasionally migrate indoors in search of moisture. They are approximately 1-1 ¼ inches long, with a thin brown body and 2 pairs of legs per body segment. They feed on decaying wood and other organic debris. So, control begins with reducing habitat around the outside of the structure. Reducing moisture and cleaning up leaf litter, especially in window wells, can help reduce populations. If needed, residual materials applied around the foundation can reduce activity even further and limit the number appearing inside the home.

We provide general pest control including millipede extermination services to customers in Chester County, PA, The Main Line, Western Delaware County and Western Montgomery County.
