Millipedes, like centipedes also like to dwell in damp areas. These creatures typically like to stay outdoors, but given hot ans dry circumstances outside, they may migrate inside. Once inside, they hide under boxes or furniture.
When they come into homes, millipedes gather on porches and patios
Millipedes do not bite, nor do they sting, however there are some species of millipedes that excrete a defensive fluid that irritates the skin.
They do not cause damage to stored food, structures, or furniture.
To prevent millipedes from entering your home, you must fully seal your home.
In the event of an emergency, one may vacuum millipedes to get rid of them swiftly - this does not fully remove an infestation. If you have millipedes contact a professional.
