MILLIPEDES

HOW TO IDENTIFY MILLIPEDES IN NEWFOUNDLAND

Though centipedes and millipedes appear similar, they share few common traits. Millipedes are longer with rounded bodies. In short, each body segment has two pairs of short legs. Depending on the exact species, a millipede can have up to 400 legs.
Millipedes’ diet differs from centipedes’. Millipedes primarily feed on decaying matter although some feed on small insects. These pests live in soil, causing damage to young plants by attacking roots and stripping stems. Millipedes are also attracted to light and may be found in large numbers around patios, driveways, decks, commercial buildings, and in parking lots.


ORDER/FAMILY

Polydesmida/ Eurymerodesmidae

SCIENTIFIC NAME

Diplopoda

BIOLOGY

Millipede eggs are laid in the soil with the female typically guarding them until they hatch. The youngest millipedes resemble small adults. However, they have no legs when first hatched

BEHAVIOUR

Millipedes aren’t poisonous and don’t bite or sting. They can emit a fluid toxin to defend themselves from predators. Some species of millipede can spray this fluid several inches. The fluid can cause skin irritation and should be washed immediately. Additional scrubbing may be required to get rid of the odour.

PREVENTING A MILLIPEDE INFESTATION

Preventing a millipede infestation is a very difficult task. You can make your property less attractive to millipedes by using a dehumidifier in damp areas of your home. Secondly, sealing all foundational cracks and crevices while keeping your yard free of any rotting wood, decaying grass and leaves helps guard against millipedes too.

GETTING RID OF MILLIPEDES

Millipedes can be difficult to get rid of, especially if they enter your home in large numbers. Vacuum cleaners can be used to remove millipedes from walls and floors. If you’re struggling to remove these pests from your home, call a professional exterminator. Terminix Canada’s Newfoundland branch provides quality millipede removal to get rid of these crawling critters for good.

I called these guys at about 7pm on a Sunday night and by 11pm the ant nest in the wall of my house was dead and no ants have been seen since. I didn't meet the tech personally but he was very professional on the phone and easy to deal with.
