Fox Pest Control’s Long Island Millipede Exterminator Service

millipede exterminator service

Is there a millipede infestation in your garden? What about your crawl space? Neither of these situations would be ideal. The millipede is a round bodied creature that enjoys eating decaying wood and leaves. If you’ve seen flat-bodied creatures crawling around your home these may be centipedes. You shouldn’t have to spend time worrying about crawling creatures like millipedes ruining your plants, or meandering across your foot in the dark. Thankfully, millipedes are preventable. Fox Pest Control wants to help you control millipedes; we want you and your family to feel comfortable in your Long Island home.

Signs of a Millipede Infestation

You might already know you have a millipede infestation, but here are a few of the most common signs millipede exterminators look for in the Long Island area. 

Sightings

Millipedes need specific weather, humidity, and temperature conditions to survive. Depending on the time of the year, they can be seen moving from spot-to-spot seeking just the right conditions.

Dead millipedes

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.

Smell

When millipedes gather in large numbers, their moist exoskeleton will leave a musty scent behind.

How To Get Rid Of Millipedes | Fox Pest Control

Millipedes look a lot like worms, but they have a lot of legs.

They can’t hurt you, but they do eat plants in your garden,

and they can find their way into your home, looking for food inside, too.

They like to hang out in dark and damp places, like your basement or laundry room.

And they can be scary to come across.

When you see millipedes inside or outside your home, call Fox Pest Control.

We’ll send a certified and licensed technician to your home that same day to get rid of your millipedes.

Fox Pest Control. No Bugs. Simply Better.

Millipede Control FAQ

HOW DO I GET RID OF MILLIPEDES?

Millipedes are easily controlled with Fox Pest Control. Our products are specifically designed to get rid of pests and help you feel safe and comfortable in your own home. Call Fox Pest Control today for a free consultation and quote. 

WHY AM I SEEING SO MANY MILLIPEDES?

On Long Island 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.

ARE MILLIPEDES DANGEROUS?

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, and if you see too many of them, call Fox and get rid of millipedes right away.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MILLIPEDES GET IN MY HOUSE?

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.

WHAT DO MILLIPEDES EAT?

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.

WHERE DO YOU FIND MILLIPEDES?

Millipedes search for dark, moist places that shelter them from the sun because most of them are unlikely to survive long without water.
