Places to watch
Normally found outdoors in damp places such as under leaves and in mulch. At times they swarm into building basements and first floor rooms.
Unlike centipedes, millipedes have round bodies, not flattened. Plus, they have two pairs of legs for almost each body sement. They’re brownish in color and are usually between 1/2″ and 1 1/2″ long. They coil up when resting.
