Though millipedes typically live outdoors, they occasionally get inside residential and commercial buildings. They particularly thrive in very damp areas, which can include improperly ventilated bathrooms. They most frequently enter buildings nearing the winter or after particularly heavy rain.

Due to the rather innocuous nature of millipedes, many people often don’t even know they have an infestation until they notice one of the insects themselves. They mostly commonly inhabit basements, crawl​ spaces or in areas with damp and decaying wood. They can be easily removed with a vac​uum cleaner as needed, but for a larger infestation it’s best to call in a professional pest control company.
