Natural Insecticide?

Hi all! We're having sort of a problem with some millipedes in our house - they're driving us nuts LOL! Any tips on natural insecticide or ways to keep them out? Thanks!

    Millipedes require a moist environment and organic matter, so the most natural thing to do is to make sure there's no mulch touching your house or wood piles close to the house. If you need to resort to an insecticide, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln recommends an insecticide containing Carbamate, applied outside the home: http://lancaster.unl.edu/pest/resources/centipedemillipede012.shtml

    Thanks, @Douglas Hunt ! I was hoping there is some eco friendly way, so not to harm the other animals outside of the house.
