Is there a millipede infestation in your garden? What about your crawl space? Neither of these situations would be ideal. You shouldn’t have to spend time worrying about slimy, crawling creatures like millipedes ruining your plants, or meandering across your foot in the dark. Thankfully, millipedes are preventable. Fox Pest Control wants to help you control millipedes; we want you and your family to feel comfortable in your Rhode Island home.
You might already know you have a millipede infestation, but here are a few of the most common signs millipede exterminators look for in the Rhode Island area.
Millipedes need specific weather, humidity, and temperature conditions to survive. Depending on the time of the year, they can be seen moving from spot-to-spot seeking just the right conditions.
Because they require a huge amount of moisture to live, millipedes will die easily if they are exposed to hot, dry conditions, or if they get caught inside a home. Dead millipedes will roll into a tight bun.
When millipedes gather in large numbers, their moist exoskeleton will leave a musty scent behind.

In Rhode Island just like earthworms, millipedes might crawl toward the house or porch as the temperatures cool or after rainfall. Millipedes can come out in large numbers and crawl toward the house during certain seasons.
Although millipedes don’t bite and won’t damage homes, they can produce a foul secretion that can irritate the skin, so it’s always best not to pick them up, and if you see too many of them, call Fox and get rid of millipedes right away.
Millipedes depend on lots of moisture to survive long, so if they get stuck inside the house, they are likely to dry out and perish within a few days.
Most of the time, millipedes are scavengers that eat decaying plant materials like leaves and water-damaged wood. If their habitat dries out, they may start to eat living plants in order to stay hydrated.
Millipedes search for dark, moist places that shelter them from the sun because most of them are unlikely to survive long without water.
Showed up at the time they stated. I had a question after they left. I emailed the company and responded quickly to my question. Very satisfied so far.

Been a customer for over 2 yrs and I am continually impressed with their service. Tom T was knowledgeable and addressed my concerns quickly, even being sure to wear booties over his shoes to keep my floors clean when he had to come in the house. Highly recommend this company.

The team was extremely helpful. They explained everything clearly, and were very professional. The gentleman that came was very nice. Best experience I've had so far.

so far ok. delays in supply chain hurt, (structure repair from critters damage pending) but appreciate the communication about the situation. Like other companies, a tad bit expensive, especially given the current economy, but they worked with me to lower things a tiny bit. I would definitely recommend them for both pest control and critter location reassignment
