What are millipedes and what do they look like?

Millipedes are particularly striking due to their long and slender worm-like bodies. The name comes from the Latin language, and it literally means “a thousand legs.” Millipedes do not actually have a thousand legs, but their number might vary, depending on the individual or the type of millipede. These pests are widespread throughout the world, and they are commonly found in homes with gardens or backyards.

What are the signs of a millipede infestation?

Millipedes can be observed in garden or backyard, and they occasionally find their way indoors, although rarely so. It is also possible to find their bite marks on leaves and grass.

Are millipedes dangerous?

Millipedes are not dangerous to humans, but they have the potential to damage leaves and garden grass since they can feed on plant matter.

"Friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. Showed up when they said they would and took care of the problem quickly. The price was fair and the service was excellent. I will for sure use Anchor Pest Control again in the future if needed. Highly recommended!"
