The millipede is a large insect that can grow to be up to 1 ¼ inch long. In addition to their length, they are notable for the number of legs they have. While each millipede is different, you can expect one to have anywhere from 80 to 400 pairs of legs. These insects are black, but you may notice a reddish tint to their dark coloring. If you have millipedes in your building, don’t expect them to go away anytime soon without using a professional millipede control service. They can live for up to seven years, and they lay hundreds of eggs throughout their lifetime. Although they aren’t harmful to people, they will eat plants. They are also nocturnal insects that move very slowly and produce a foul odor.
