MILLIPEDE CONTROL, PREVENT ENTRY:
Keeping millipedes out in the first place is the best way to mitigate your invaders.
- Seal cracks and gaps around windows and doors. Millipedes can squeeze through even the smallest openings, so it’s important to seal any cracks or gaps around windows and doors with caulk or weatherstripping.
- Seal cracks and gaps in the foundation. Millipedes can also enter your home through cracks and gaps in the foundation. To seal these openings, you can use caulk, expanding foam, or concrete.
- Install door sweeps. Door sweeps are a type of weatherstripping that helps to seal the bottom of doors. This can help to prevent millipedes from crawling under the doors.
- Screen vents. Millipedes can also enter your home through vents. To prevent this, you can screen all of the vents in your home.
- Keep your home dry. Millipedes are attracted to moisture, so it’s important to keep your home dry.
- Remove debris from around your home. Millipedes like to hide in moist, dark places. To discourage them from coming into your home, remove any debris from around your foundation, such as leaves, mulch, and woodpiles.
- Check your garage door seal. A worn out garage door seal is an open invitation to millipedes. Replace if necessary.
