Often confused for centipedes, millipedes aren’t poisonous and don’t bite or sting. Nevertheless, removing them from your property is of utmost importance to our team here at Terminix Canada’s Newfoundland branch. Depend on our quality millipede control that rids your home of these creepy crawling pests for good.
