Summer and rain usually mean humidity and a potentially bad hair day, but it may also come with some creepy crawlies. Rain tends to flood pests out of their hiding spaces outside, and they will seek refuge in places within your home that still have high moisture (a huge necessity for their survival). One of the pests that heavily relies on an abundance of moisture is the millipede.

Here are some facts about this many-legged pest and some tips to keep them out:
