Because Millipedes require moisture for their survival, they don’t usually infest inside homes. When they do find their way indoors, they die in a few days {unless you have a bad moisture problem!} Millipedes can bread all year round with the right conditions, and adult females ulay between 20 and 300 eggs which will hatch in several weeks! Eggs are laid in rotting organic materials or cavities in the soil.¬†
