    You can use Boric acid. This weak acid is derived from the mineral borate. It is in powder form and can be used for filling cracks and crevices where millipedes might wander. Boric acid sticks to their legs and bodies and acts as a dessicant (like diatomaceous earth) and as a stomach poison.

    I had millipedes in the basement when I was pregnant and had to call an exterminator. I recently had carpet beetles and called an exterminator. Haven't seen any since he sprayed.

    I spray once amonth and still get them, I think I will try the Boric acid. Thanks
