Millipedes prefer to be in a damp environment where they can eat damp, decaying wood or plants. They typically are found outside where there is a plentiful amount of decay and wetness. They like places such as trash, mulch, grass clippings and more. They’ll make their way indoors when they cannot satisfy their need for moisture. They’ll only survive a few days after entering a home or shelter unless they’re capable of finding moisture and food. You’ll rarely see a millipede running around during the day, and if you do, it’s typically a sign of infestation and crowding. They’re nocturnal, running around at night to scour an area for decaying food.
