Centipedes, Millipedes & Silverfish

Millipedes

millipede

Size: Usually around 2 inches or less in length.

Color: Brown or black.

Behavior – Millipedes usually reside in moist vegetation, leaf piles and mulch beds. They feed on organic matter found in these areas. Millipedes are different from centipedes in that they have two pairs of legs per body segment. They are not common inside homes, however it is possible to have infestation especially if you have a basement or crawl space.

Habitat – Mostly outdoors, centipedes stay in moist, covered areas such as mulch and beneath rocks. If found indoors, they may be seen near baseboards or around doorways and windows.

Tips for Control: Seal cracks and holes in your exterior of your home. Mulch should be kept away from the foundation.
