How to get rid of the ugly millipedes from my front yard?
Hillela G. on May 29, 2017If you have a lot of downed wood around your home or piles of firewood, then you are helping attract millipedes to your home. Burning piles of wood may be a good way in some areas if allowed and if conditions are right. Landfills often accept woody debris for little or no fee from homeowners. Anything with nails or other sharp objects embedded can be burned, but you may want to use a magnet to get the metal up afterward or make sure to sweep the area well.Helpful Reply
Janet Collins on May 29, 2017You can spray them and entire area with carpenter ant and termite killer. Also, as stated previously, they feed on decaying matter, so if you have bark mulch or ild leaves near porch, clean it all up. Rock mulch would be the best mulch as far as the insects are concerned. They also love moisture, so try to keep good drainage.Helpful Reply
