Are there millipedes in your garden? What about your crawl space? Neither of these situations are ideal. You shouldn’t have to spend time worrying about slimy, crawling creatures like millipedes ruining your plants or crawling across your foot in the dark. Thankfully, millipedes are preventable. Fox Pest Control wants you and your family to feel comfortable in your home.
You might already know for sure that you have a millipede problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of millipede infestation in Chicago Metro Area.
Millipedes may show themselves in a specific area during certain times of the year, depending on weather, humidity, and temperature. Sometimes, they may congregate in specific places.
Because they require a huge amount of moisture to live, millipedes will die easily if they are exposed to hot, dry conditions, or if they get caught inside a home. Dead millipedes will roll into a tight bun.
When millipedes gather in large numbers, their moist exoskeleton will leave a musty scent behind.

Just like earthworms, millipedes might crawl toward the house or porch as the temperatures cool or after rainfall. Millipedes can come out in large numbers and crawl toward the house during certain seasons.
Although millipedes don’t bite and won’t damage homes, they can produce a foul secretion that can irritate the skin, so it’s always best not to pick them up.
Millipedes depend on lots of moisture to survive long, so if they get stuck inside the house, they are likely to dry out and perish within a few days.
Most of the time, millipedes are scavengers that eat decaying plant materials like leaves and water-damaged wood. If their habitat dries out, they may start to eat living plants in order to stay hydrated.
Millipedes search for dark, moist places that shelter them from the sun because most of them are unlikely to survive long without water.
