Every year, I get this little worm/caterpillar/centipede looking things in my garage.  I spray in and out and after a week or so they are gone.

THIS YEAR....  I have had hundreds of them, and they aren't going away!!!

What are they, and how in the world do I get rid of them???



Curled up after dead...



What I usually use to spray...

Those little bastards are all over my place too.  No idea what they are.

But it looks like some sort of millipede.

Millipedes.

I had a massive infestation one year, and none before or since.

Harmless but messy.

Will anything keep them at bay?

I did notice they seemed to have come from nowhere after i cleaned the garage (hosed and scrubbed it out)   I have a dehumidifier, maybe i should start running it....

my wife fights these critters and she says use the granular home defense and broadcast on your yard.....that is where they are coming from per the wife unit......

Flesh eating millipedes.

Those are the juvenile forms.

They morph into the size of poodles and will eat your face off while you are asleep.

they mostly come out at night... mostly...

That Home Defense is worthless.  I just used up the last I had.  Bugs probably build up a resistance to it.

This is what you need OP Demon WP . Read the directions and spray accordingly inside and out. Pay special attention to mulched areas and flower beds that hold moisture. Also, if you want to put down some granules around the perimeter of your house, flower beds and such, this stuff Bifen Granules works very well. WARNING!––-> If you have a Koi pond or anything like that DO NOT get the Bifen granules in the water or even put them where they might be washed in when it rains or the lawn is watered.
