Centipedes and millipedes often invade homes in the fall, when the dry air outside drives them indoors to seek moisture. These nuisance pests are not aggressive toward humans, but infestations can be large and disruptive.
Millipedes are nonvenomous pests that feed on decaying plant matter like mulch and logs, as well as dead insects. Centipedes use venom to kill pests like roaches, flies and moths. Centipedes will bite if they are stepped on or crushed, but may not break the skin with their weak jaws. If a centipede does break the skin, its bite can cause redness, pain and swelling.
Signs of a Centipede or Millipede Problem
Centipedes and millipedes are most active at night and are usually found in damp areas, like basements. While centipedes and millipedes look similar, there are a few distinguishing features.
