Types of Millipedes in Florida

Despite their unsettling appearance, millipedes cannot bite or sting people. However, they sometimes release a foul-smelling liquid that can irritate skin. If you plan to try to identify the millipedes in your home on your own, avoid touching them. When dealing with any pest, it’s best to call our experts to safely identify them.

Yellow-Banded Millipede

Yellow-banded millipedes are dark gray in color, with yellow bands that fade to gray as they age. The most common species of millipedes in Florida, you can often find yellow-banded millipedes crawling on the outer walls of buildings. While they tend to invade homes, they do not infest food storage or damage houseplants.

Red Rusty Millipede

Reddish-brown in color, the red rusty millipede is an invasive species from southeast Asia. Unlike the yellow-banded millipede, the red rusty millipede is far less likely to invade your home. This species of millipede prefers to feed on decaying plant matter, and lives in moist, shady habitats.

Greenhouse Millipede

Dark brown in color with light yellow legs and segments, greenhouse millipedes are commonly found throughout the Sunshine State. Less than an inch long, these tiny crawling pests are more likely to invade your shed, garden, or greenhouse than your living space.

How to Prevent Millipedes in Florida

Ready to stop millipedes from finding their way into your home? As arthropods that depend heavily on moisture to survive, millipedes are drawn to areas of high humidity. Seal any pipes, vents, and other structures prone to leaking water, and consider using a dehumidifier. Remember to clean out your gutters as well, since millipedes feed on the dead leaves and other plant decay that collect in them.
