The millipedes found around Perth naturally occur in south west Europe. They were first recorded around Roleystone in 1986 where a shipping container was placed for a length of time. From there, the tiny eggs hatched and today, almost every suburb in Perth has reported active Millipedes. They congregate in large numbers and are quite mobile, especially after the first rains in autumn. Millipedes can damage melons, strawberries, tomatoes and potatoes and are attracted to external lights. Although not covered, Millipedes will die in numbers as a result of having one of our Pest Packages or alternatively, we offer a specific Millipede treatment.
