Frequently Asked Questions

Most millipedes, including the black Portuguese millipede species, typically emerge in the autumn months in Australia, particularly in March and April after the first rains. This is the breeding season for these millipedes, and the combination of warm and wet weather conditions creates the perfect environment for them to thrive. During this time, it is common to see large swarms of Portuguese millipedes crawling across the ground and walls of homes and other buildings. If you live in an area like South Australia that is prone to infestations due to leaf litter, it is essential to take preventive measures to minimise the risk of an infestation, especially during the autumn months.

Portuguese millipedes are easy to recognize because of their distinctive appearance. These millipedes are typically dark brown or black in colour, with a segmented body that can range in length from a few centimetres to several inches. They have many legs, with two pairs of legs per body segment, giving them a distinctive “hairy” appearance.

One of the most noticeable features of Portuguese millipedes is their tendency to move in large swarms, especially during their breeding season in the autumn months. You may also notice a strong, unpleasant odour when handling or encountering these millipedes, which is a defence mechanism they use to deter predators.

If you suspect that you have an infestation in your home or property, you may see millipedes crawling across the ground, walls, and ceilings. They can also leave behind trails of mucus or excrement, which can be a sign of an infestation. It is crucial to take action to eliminate an infestation as soon as possible to prevent them from damaging your property or causing other issues.

While a dehumidifier can help to reduce the moisture levels in your home, which is a factor that can attract Portuguese millipedes, it is not a guaranteed solution to getting rid of an infestation. Dehumidifiers work by removing excess moisture from the air, which can help to make your home less hospitable to millipedes, as they thrive in damp environments.

However, dehumidifiers will not eliminate millipedes that are already present in your home. To get rid of a millipede infestation, you will need to take more comprehensive pest control measures, such as sealing up entry points, removing food sources, and using insecticides or other pest control products to kill millipedes that are already present.

In addition to using a dehumidifier, you can take other preventive measures to minimise the risk of a millipede infestation, such as keeping your home clean and free of clutter, sealing up cracks and gaps around doors and windows, and removing decaying vegetation and other organic matter from your yard. If you are experiencing a severe millipede infestation, it is best to seek the advice of a pest control professional who can recommend the best course of action for your specific situation.
