Facts About Millipedes

Millipedes

Millipedes are those long black bugs with what seems like a million tiny legs that you see crawling in your bedroom windows and that curl into a tight ball when threatened. They won’t bite you, but they can emit a smelly fluid that might irritate your eyes or skin.┬áMillipedes are decomposers. They eat plant remains and feces. Millipedes are nocturnal creatures (active during the night).These can survive up to 7 years in the wild. Millipedes exist on the planet at least 428 million years. They are the first organisms that managed to leave the water and to start successful life on the solid ground.

Centipedes are also much quicker than millipedes. The most important difference is that centipedes are carnivores and some species can bite. A centipede’s bite is quite painful and its venom can cause health problems.
