Class: Diplopoda

Most people associate millipedes as the arthropod with 1000 legs, but in reality the number of legs that they have, ranges between 36 to over 400 legs. They are usually black or brown in colour and their long cylindrical bodies vary in length of about 2 mm to 350 mm long. These nocturnal creatures prefer moist areas, but are also found in forests and deserts. In your home and buildings they can be found under porches, in the basement, under furniture or stored away boxes. Their main diet consists of decomposed vegetables, faeces, organic matter mixed in the soil, or piles of dead leaves. Signs of infestation would include the actual sighting of the millipedes.

My tenant had a cockroach problem in the basement, so I called Termax. They came at the scheduled time and took their time to spray all the cabinets and baseboards. Ever since that treatment there has no longer been any cockroaches.

I called Termax for my raccoon problem back in June. The technician took his time to explain us the situation. He installed a one-way door and the next day my problem was solved. He even found 5 baby raccoons in my attic that I was unaware of! They also sealed up all my vents to prevent any other raccoons or squirrels from breaking in again.

I heard noises in the middle of the night so I went to take a look. When I went to my kitchen I saw a mouse running by! I'm terrified of mice so my friend told me to try calling Termax even though it was really late. This was around 1am but they still sent a technician out right away when I called. He came within the hour. Not only did he catch the mouse for me but also laid some bait stations around my house. I was really happy with their service, haven't seen a single mouse since then
