Centipedes & Millipedes

What are centipedes and millipedes?

Both millipedes and centipedes are known as occasional invaders. They spend most of their lives outside, but they migrate into homes and other structures when the weather dictates it. Besides occasionally moving into our homes, other similarities include many legs, segmented bodies, an exoskeleton, and poor vision.

While these arthropods are similar, these leggy creatures do have many differences:

  • Centipedes have an elongated, flattened body while millipedes have a cylindrical worm-like body.
  • Millipedes are dark brown to black in color. Some millipedes have red or orange mottled markings. Centipedes are a yellowish-gray or brown color. 
  • Centipedes have long antennae; millipedes have short antennae.
  • Millipedes have two pairs of legs per body segment; they move at a slow pace. Centipedes have one pair of legs per body segment and use their legs to move very quickly. 
  • Centipedes are carnivores and hunt down their prey while millipedes are scavengers and feed on decaying organic matter.

Are centipedes and millipedes dangerous?

Centipedes and millipedes aren't dangerous pests, but that doesn't mean we want them living near or inside our homes in large populations. While not a threat in the typical sense, there are some threats that these occasional invaders pose to people, though, if you or your family come into direct contact with them.

Centipedes — Centipedes can deliver painful bites. The good news is the venom they inject with their bites is not potent enough to cause health problems in people, but the bad news is that the bites can be quite painful.

Millipedes — Millipedes spray a "toxic" unpleasant-smelling liquid as a means of defense. Coming into direct contact with a millipede can cause a skin reaction.
