Rainfall in Perth can lead to Millipedes coming out in force!

Autumn Rains in Perth. DIY Millipedes & Control…

Autumn here at home in WA means – Portuguese Millipedes. DIY millipedes, control options & our expert help are on tap here at Envirapest. No-one like millipedes crawling all over your home, business, sheds or back veranda. Every time we get a little Perth rain in Autumn, out they come and generally in force!  As a defence mechanism, the millipede secretes a pungent yellowish fluid containing hydrogen cyanide. Overall, they are simply a pain in the bum. We forget about them for months, then out of the blue, the Autumn rains come to Perth and the millipede pain begins all over again.

DIY Millipedes. Controls & More..

Over the past 30 years, Perth millipedes have steadily increased & invaded our homes. They’re a headache. Envirapest have carried out Portuguese millipede treatments from Two Rocks to Dawesville & everywhere in-between. We sent our DIY Millipede Control & Nematode kits and custom built light traps as far South as Albany and Esperance & as far east as Victoria. Perth millipedes are a problem. They have settled into our terrain & they love it. So Envirapest has decided to do something about it. To add to our custom millipede light trap range this year, Envirapest have developed a brand new “easy to use” DIY millipede control &  nematode kit to suit all home sizes and properties.

A Little Bit More On Our WA Built Light Traps…

We have developed our very own millipede light trap to help our clients. We realised there was no suitable light traps on the market for millipedes – so we did the hard yards and built our own. After years of research and trials we are excited to be able to offer our clients this unique and quality trap that will last a lifetime. The traps are a great stand alone chemical-free control option or can be used in conjunction with nematode release programs and with more traditional chemical barrier treatments.
