Millipedes?

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys I have a problem with thousands and more of millipedes has anyone ever had this problem? They are a nuisance and are on the move in the night time they get all over everything some get in the house.Just wondering if anybody has had to deal with them before and what to use to kill them Thanks Todd

Never heard of that before, but I guess being that you're out in New York you'd have different problems than us. We use TalStar for our insect applications, I checked the label and it does say that it kills millipedes. It's safe to spray on pretty much anything, too.

Some insect applications we cannot use here in NY crazy. I just read a good artical from ohio state university and it says that the insectiside name Sevin (concentrate) will do the job.I have applicated it around the the outside of my home lets see how good it works.I have tried straight amonia,bleach,viniger and they just keep going these millipedes are a crustation of some sort hopefully this Sevin will do it.

Are they millipedes or centipedes? Centipedes have long legs and millipedes have short legs. I've never heard of anyone having much of a millipede problem. We get our share of centipedes in the basement, but not too many that I can't squish them with a shoe.

I ahd a horrible problem with them last year in my new building. They came in everywhere! Never seen anything like that in my whole life. I used Tempo around the perimeter of the building inside and out. Tempo smokes em! I swear that I wouldve had a gallon of them each time I blew out my building (45 X 66) had I chosen to collect them.

Any farm chemical coop should have Tempo. It works great for the asian beetles also. Its expensive, like $39 for a pint, but it only takes a tablespoon or so to a 3 gallon pump sprayer.

I sprayed the concrete inside and outside of my building for the millipedes, and I spray around the windows, doors, foundation of my house for any insect, but mainly for the asian beetles. Stops them dead in their tracks when they walk thru the dried spray and they fall to the side of the house.

    •   Stayed home for the 4th this year, was amazed how quiet the cities seemed to be. "Is everybody up north?"
    •   I sure like the sites your old campground kept open for weekenders. Best spots in the campground if you ask me.    
    • so leech, does your campground have festivities functions for there permy site people? ours had a big fish fry on the fourth with a little parade. they do a golfing event to. i heard they finally got some decent playground equipment for kids. there theory was theres fishing. they used to do a pot luck with a theme german, mexican..bleah blah.....but that required work and planning from the owners. took away from the beer drinking! 
    •   I have noticed that trend at seasonal campgrounds too. 20 some years ago when we started camping seasonal sites used to be full of folks 60+ but now it seems that there are a lot of young families in these sites.    The other trend I noticed is that lot rental prices have gone through the roof since then. 
    •   Well in the 12 years we have been at this campground it went from mostly old folks where if your Walker wheel was squeaking someone would run out with a can of WD-40 to stop the noise! Now a lot of young families with kids. Most of the year it's not to bad, but the Holidays can get a little crazy with the golf carts and beer flowing!   I don't let folks bother me much, I have two young grandsons so their in the mix!
    • I have definitely come to the conclusion that on those big 3 day holiday weekends its way more quiet and peaceful if i stay put at home.................even up north. hey i can have a fire and have cocktails at home too!!!!!!! the weekends to go are weekends prior to and after them big weekends!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Pretty much the same on enforcing some of the rules. The 4th was a Zoo and I'm sure the managers head was spinning trying to keep track of who all the kids running belonged too!
    • well it didnt help our family has a cabin up in itasca county and have had it since 1965. the camper took time away from there. granted the camper was 30 minutes from home the cabin 3 1/2 hours but there is agood city block of woods between us and the neighbor.............and we have noone on the other side. i dont mind a little socoilizing but that peace and quiet is right up my ally.   so leech does your park charge extra for additional company not your immediate family? the campground we were at did, but they didnt enforce it fairly. some were forced some got to slide. oh and there were alot of other issues i got fed up with!!!!!!!
    • No ones making fun leech. Just made a statement. I've never seen one like that before. I've seen the hand ones curved, but not the powered one. Guess it could be like the hand one. I could be wrong. Be interested to see if they sold one like that, or someone put a power head on it. I'll let you take over now.
