TERMINIX CANADA: GET THE QUALITY MILLIPEDE CONTROL YOU NEED

MILLIPEDES GIVING YOU A MILLION REASONS TO STAY UP AT NIGHT?

While millipedes are generally harmless to humans, their freaky appearance often gives home and business owners sleepless nights. Ranging from as little as 2mm to as large as 35cm, millipedes have as few as eleven and as many as hundreds of body segments.

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.

HOW DO MILLIPEDE INFESTATIONS START?

If you’ve spotted a millipede infestation in your home or place of business, millipedes are likely breeding in your lawn or under mulch, leaf litter, or debris near your foundation.

Typically living outside in damp areas including compost piles, flowerpots, boards or stones, they enter indoor spaces in search of water or shelter when heavy rain disturbs their natural habitat.

REMOVE MILLIPEDES IN NEWFOUNDLAND WITH EFFECTIVE MILLIPEDE CONTROL

Millipedes cunningly find ways indoors through basement doors, windows, vents, and open garage doors. Often spotted in yards on porches and patios, removing them from your space is a job best left to our professionals.

Our trained pest management professionals know best how to apply and how to remove millipedes with insecticide. Areas for treatment include the bottom of exterior doors, crawlspace entrances, foundation vents, utility openings, areas underneath sidings, mulch and plant beds, and up the base of foundation walls.

Effective millipede control involves the following steps:

  • Removing moisture from your foundation or crawlspaces
  • Using properly functioning gutters, downspouts and splash blocks to keep water away from your foundation wall. If your house has poor drainage, you may need to install tiles or drains, or slope the ground so water drains away from your foundation
  • Repairing leaky faucets, water pipes, and air conditioning units
  • Adjusting your sprinkler system to minimize water pooling on your lawn
  • Reducing humidity in your crawlspace or basement by providing adequate ventilation, sump pumps, and/or polyethylene soil covers.

MILLIPEDE Facts

ORDER/FAMILY

Polydesmida/ Eurymerodesmidae

BIOLOGY

Millipede eggs are laid in the soil with the youngest millipedes resembling small adults. However, they have no legs when first hatched.

BEHAVIOUR

Millipedes aren’t poisonous and don’t bite or sting. They defend themselves by emitting a fluid toxin. Millipedes’ many short legs make them powerful burrowers.

CONTROL

Sealing all foundational cracks and crevices while keeping yards free of any rotting wood, decaying grass and leaves helps deter millipedes.
