Millipedes generally live outdoors in damp places. They range in color from red to brown and average 4-5 inches in length. They have a cylindrical body with 2 pairs of legs per section of body, except for the first 3 sections which only have one leg each.
Millipedes are nocturnal and burrow underground during the day. They forage for decaying organic materials such as plants and leaves.
Millipedes do not bite, however they do release an unpleasant odor if crushed and some people may be allergic to this liquid.
Millipedes can be controlled with a combination of environmental and pest control solutions.
