Invasion of the Leggy Intruders: Tackling Georgia's Millipede Migrations and Keeping Your Home Safe!

Millipedes are fascinating creatures, often unnoticed as they go about their daily lives in the soil, leaf litter, and other damp, dark places. However, when they migrate in large numbers, these seemingly harmless arthropods can quickly become unwelcome guests in homes and businesses across Georgia. In this blog post, we'll explore the phenomenon of millipede migration, why you might find them in your living or working spaces, and how to protect your property from invasion with the help of Nuvolve Pest Control's pet-safe, environmentally responsible, and odorless treatments.

Millipede Migration: What is it and when does it happen? Millipedes typically migrate during specific times of the year, primarily in search of food, mates, and better living conditions. These migrations often occur in spring and fall when the weather is favorable for their survival. In Georgia, it's not uncommon to see a large number of millipedes inside homes and businesses during these events.

Why are millipedes attracted to your home or business? Millipedes are attracted to dark, damp places with an abundance of decaying organic matter, which provides them with food and shelter. Common places where millipedes can be found in homes and businesses include basements, crawl spaces, and areas with poor ventilation. They can also be attracted to water sources, such as leaky pipes or poorly-drained areas around your property.

How to get rid of millipedes and prevent them from invading your space:

  1. Reduce moisture: Fix any leaks or poorly-drained areas around your property. Use a dehumidifier in damp spaces like basements and crawl spaces to lower humidity levels.

  2. Seal entry points: Inspect the exterior of your home or business for gaps and cracks where millipedes can enter. Seal any entry points with caulk or other appropriate materials.

  3. Remove debris: Clear away leaf litter, woodpiles, and other organic debris around your property, as these areas provide millipedes with food and shelter.

  4. Use pest control services: Professional pest control companies like Nuvolve Pest Control offer specialized treatments to eliminate and prevent millipede infestations in your home or business.
