Is there a millipede infestation in your garden? What about your crawl space? Neither of these situations would be ideal. The millipede is a round bodied creature that enjoys eating decaying wood and leaves. If you’ve seen flat-bodied creatures crawling around your home these may be centipedes. You shouldn’t have to spend time worrying about slimy, crawling creatures like millipedes ruining your plants, or meandering across your foot in the dark. Thankfully, millipedes are preventable. Fox Pest Control wants to help you control millipedes; we want you and your family to feel comfortable in your Hudson Valley home.
You might already know you have a millipede infestation, but here are a few of the most common signs millipede exterminators look for in the Hudson Valley area.
Millipedes need specific weather, humidity, and temperature conditions to survive. Depending on the time of the year, they can be seen moving from spot-to-spot seeking just the right conditions.
Because they require a huge amount of moisture to live, millipedes will die easily if they are exposed to hot, dry conditions, or if they get caught inside a home. Dead millipedes will roll into a tight bun.
When millipedes gather in large numbers, their moist exoskeleton will leave a musty scent behind.

In Hudson Valley just like earthworms, millipedes might crawl toward the house or porch as the temperatures cool or after rainfall. Millipedes can come out in large numbers and crawl toward the house during certain seasons.
Although millipedes don’t bite and won’t damage homes, they can produce a foul secretion that can irritate the skin, so it’s always best not to pick them up, and if you see too many of them, call Fox and get rid of millipedes right away.
Millipedes depend on lots of moisture to survive long, so if they get stuck inside the house, they are likely to dry out and perish within a few days.
Most of the time, millipedes are scavengers that eat decaying plant materials like leaves and water-damaged wood. If their habitat dries out, they may start to eat living plants in order to stay hydrated.
Millipedes search for dark, moist places that shelter them from the sun because most of them are unlikely to survive long without water.

I don't know how Fox does it. Every single technician is even more pleasant and professional than the next! Nash was fantastic and a pleasure to have over here for the springtail treatment. He was polite, professional, and just the consummate gentleman. Someone give this man a raise!Thank you!
Fox was excellent. The service provided was very thorough and the service was beyond what I had expected. The service technician was very personable and knowledgeable. Most importantly, the treatment works! Definitely would recommend.
The people at Fox Pest Control were great! An appointment was scheduled in a timely manner, the exterminator arrived on time and completed the job efficiently. The bees have disappeared as promised!
Like the service consistent with who they send out every time (they send me Eric P) they really get to know the property. really target the property inside and out
The technician Jason was really nice! He took care of all my wasp issues and was very professional. I look forward to having him service our home
