Millipedes normally live outdoors in damp places such as decaying leaves and in mulch around outdoor plantings. They feed on damp and decaying vegetable matter as well as new roots and green leaves. In wooded areas millipedes live in piles of leaf litter. In dry weather they will migrate out of the litter piles as the leaves dry, and may enter buildings in large numbers.
Millipedes are brownish, oval, elongate animals with two pair of legs attached to most segments. Millipedes are ½ to 1 ½ inches long and tend to coil up when resting. Millipedes feed and reproduce in decaying organic matter.
