Can I use Demon WP for millipedes? (Narceus americanus millipede)
I have them on the patio and a few in the house in the evening.
Demon WP is labeled for millipedes and will eliminate millipedes that cross over treated areas. Millipedes are usually going to be present when there is a lot of moisture in the area. If you have a lot of mulch near your house you may want to consider raking it back at least six inches away from the house. Also trimming bushes so that you can see the soil beneath them and so they do not touch the house will help reduce soil moisture and stop the insects from gaining access to the house via the bushes. You should apply Demon WP around the outside perimeter of the home (especially under and around eaves, decks, patios, and window shutters), and inside along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and other potential millipede harborages. We have written an article with other tips that may help you with millipede control : Get Rid of Millipedes
