Millipedes are a common household pest in Wisconsin. These worm-like arthropods are 1-2 inches in length and are black in color. Despite their “thousand-legger” nickname, millipedes only have 60 to 200 legs, on average. Like centipedes, millipedes love damp and dark areas, such as mulch piles, garages, rotten wood, and basements. They are nocturnal insects that primarily feed on decaying plants and insects.

Millipedes are attracted to damp and dark areas. If you have moist areas around your house, including garages or basements, there is an increased chance of attracting millipedes inside. However, most of the time, millipedes accidentally wander inside homes. 

Millipedes are harmless. They do not bite or damage property. Millipedes are a common household nuisance that can leave behind smelly odors.
