Millipedes in Palm Beach County

It isn’t odd to see a millipede both in and out of your home in the Palm Beach Gardens area. When stumbled upon indoors, they’re going to most likely be discovered in damp places. Outside the house they generally tend to appreciate flowers and home gardens. You’ll certainly notice millipedes outside your home if there is mulch or leaves near the outer walls. They merely want wet earth or a damp area. Millipedes happen to eat decaying pieces of timber that they come across and decayed leaves.

Millipedes begin migrating in the Autumn season, coming out from their habitat. Though scientists suspect the millipedes are getting ready for winter, migrating millipedes have also been discovered whenever their home gets flooded by substantial rain. During this period it is not odd to find them inside your property.

Millipede Sightings & Access Points

In case the millipedes happen upon your property, the patio or porch is likely their primary option for refuge. Nevertheless, they do not stop there. They could also scale the property, looking for a way inside; many times an undetected crack or crevice, or some other entrance you are not aware of.

To prevent millipedes from gaining entry it is important to inspect the seals on your:

  • windows and doors
  • crawl space entry
  • vents
  • doors on your garage
  • cellar entryways

If the basement or some other storage room or space is filled with boxes and other items, fully clean it out regularly to stop millipedes from taking cover underneath your belongings and/or furnishings.

Techniques for Minimizing Millipede Invasions

Dispose of any extra compost. Always make sure that a six inch space is between your foundation and any flowerbeds or shrubs. This can include eradicating any compost, grass and dead leaves directly against the home’s exterior.

Check all the screens on the doors, vents and windows. It’s vital that crawl space and attic screens are in one piece and not faulty. The entry door should seal tightly and securely, allowing no space for harmful pests to enter; given that they definitely will if they can.

Be sure that the windows and doors contain weather stripping that is intact and free from damages. When you notice weather stripping absent or any sort of damage, it needs to be fixed. Your lower level entrances need secure weather stripping. If you can see light below or around a doorway (or window) it should be replaced.
