Identifying Millipede Infestations

There are very few millipede species throughout the world. In fact, Portuguese millipedes are the only millipede species you’ll find in Western Australia. As the name suggests, Portuguese millipedes arrived in large numbers from Portugal over 50 years ago. They’ve since been found in nearly every suburb of Perth. They are easily identified by their black cylindrical body and usually travel in numbers. When disturbed, you’ll find the curl into a tight spiral as a defence mechanism. They are attracted to light, therefore they are commonly found under both internal and external lights.

Where are they typically found? Typically outdoors in compost piles, leaf litter, decaying wood, plant material, organic matter and in garden beds. However, it’s not uncommon for Portuguese millipedes to invade homes, especially after periods of rain.

What Should You Do If Your Home is Infested With Portuguese Millipedes?

It's important to keep in mind that Portuguese millipedes are not harmful to humans or pets, and they generally only enter homes in search of shelter or to escape dry conditions. By reducing the moist conditions and sealing entry points, you can help prevent future infestations. If your home is infested with Portuguese millipedes, here are some steps you can take to control them:

  • Seal entry points: Inspect the outside of your home and seal any cracks or gaps that millipedes could use to enter. This includes gaps around windows, doors, and plumbing fixtures.
  • Remove their habitat: Remove any piles of leaves, mulch, or other organic debris near the foundation of your home that might be providing millipedes with a habitat.
  • Provide adequate ventilation: Make sure your basement and crawl spaces have adequate ventilation to reduce the humidity that millipedes need to survive.
  • Reduce humidity: If your basement or crawl spaces are still moist, use a dehumidifier to reduce the humidity to levels that are inhospitable to millipedes.
  • Call a professional: If the infestation is persistent and you're unable to control it on your own, consider calling a professional pest control company for assistance.

Millipede Control FAQs

Why do I have millipedes in my house?

There could be several reasons why you have Portuguese millipedes in your house:

  • Moisture: Millipedes thrive in moist environments, so if your home has high humidity levels, it can attract them inside.
  • Food sources: If there are organic materials in your home, such as piles of leaves, mulch, or decaying wood, millipedes may be attracted to feed on them.
  • Shelter: Millipedes may enter your home to escape dry or hot weather conditions, seeking shelter inside.
  • Access points: Millipedes can easily crawl through small cracks and gaps in the foundation, walls, and around doors and windows. If these entry points are not properly sealed, millipedes can enter your home.
  • Presence of millipedes outdoors: If there is a large population of millipedes in your yard, they may find their way into your home through open doors, windows, or vents.

It's important to keep in mind that Portuguese millipedes are not harmful to humans or pets, and they generally only enter homes in search of shelter or to escape dry conditions. By reducing the moist conditions and sealing entry points, you can help prevent future infestations.

How do I get rid of millipedes?

Millipedes are common pests that can be found in damp areas such as basements, crawl spaces, and bathrooms. If you're looking to get rid of millipedes, here are a few steps you can take:

  • Remove their habitat: Millipedes thrive in damp and dark environments, so it's important to remove their habitat. Fix any leaks or moisture problems in your home, and use a dehumidifier to reduce the humidity in the air.
  • Seal cracks and crevices: Millipedes can enter your home through small cracks and crevices, so it's important to seal them up. Use caulk or weather stripping to seal any gaps around windows, doors, and pipes.
  • Remove debris: Millipedes can hide in piles of debris, such as leaves or woodpiles. Keep your yard and basement clean and clutter-free to reduce their hiding spots
  • Call Aussie Pest Co: Finally, if nothing helps, you may need help from the experts. Don’t hesitate to call out pest controllers for advice.
