INVADING YOUR HOME?
SPECIALIST MILLIPEDE CONTROL FOR MOUNT GAMBIER AND SURROUNDS
STOP THE MILLIPEDE INVASION WITH A PROFESSIONAL MILLIPEDE TREATMENT FROM SPIDERMAN SE
A millipede invasion can come out of nowhere. Normally, peak millipede season is Autumn and with sometimes a smaller peak in spring, but there’s no way to predict it. Millipedes aren’t dangerous but they have pungent excretion that can be irritating and also stain floors and clothing.
Don’t squish them, call Spiderman SE.

HOW OUR MILLIPEDE TREATMENTS WORK
Our treatments are designed to kill the millipedes by direct contact. As soon as you spot the first millipedes, give us a call.
It also leaves behind an invisible layer of insecticide on treated surfaces to kill millipedes that come along later. However, as the treatment is exposed to sun and rain in the garden beds it will only last a few weeks, so it cannot be used as a long term preventative treatment.
To reduce the chances of a millipede problem check out our prevention tips below.
HOW TO PREVENT A MILLIPEDE PROBLEM
There are two key facts which shape our prevention tips:
Millipedes live in garden beds where they like the moisture and feed on leaf litter, although they will happily live in damp sub-floors.
Portuguese millipedes (the pest millipede in South Australia) are active at night and attracted to light.
Our top tips to reduce millipede numbers around your home:
Ideally you should not have garden beds around the perimeter of your home. If this is not possible / desired, using pebbles as mulch and minimise watering will help
Make sure all entry points to the home have good fitting screens or are sealed up
Turn off external lights and use curtains / blinds during millipede season to make your home less attractive
Consider using a light trap away from the house as an alternative light source to attract and kill the millipedes
Place smooth rounded physical barriers around the perimeter of the home at ground level to prevent millipedes climbing into your home (they cannot climb smooth surfaces)
