Millipede?

Asked August 19, 2019, 5:07 PM EDT

Hi, Wondering what attracts these millipedes to the pavement near my house in great numbers and some to the basement, too. They seem to hatch in August and disappear in early Autumn. - Ken

Hi,

They are looking for drier areas and for places to overwinter. See this information from the U: https://extension.umn.edu/insect-relatives/sowbugs-millipedes-and-centipedes
