Millipedes usually are considered an outdoor pest that may seek refuge in dark, damp areas around and inside your home. Millipedes live outdoors, and feed on damp, decaying vegetation, forest litter, grass clippings; compost heaps, and mulched areas. Female Millipedes can lie from 20 to 300 eggs in decaying organic material. The eggs hatch in a few weeks called “Thousand Legers” they have two pair of legs attached to each body segment.
Collier Pest Control through experience has learned that the majority of Millipede migration will stop soon after our first cold front passes through that brings the temperature down to the low 50’s Millipede activity will begin again when the temperatures stay above 75 to 80 degrees.
