We have been helping customers in the Chicagoland area eliminate all types of pests for years, and we are eager to do the same for you. Among the pests that may infest your home are millipedes and other occasional invaders. Though they are not harmful to humans or pets, their presence in your house is nevertheless unwelcome. They are unsightly and unpleasant, so it is essential to eliminate them before they multiply. If you notice one or more crawling across your floor, call us today to learn about how we can get rid of them and prevent them from returning.
Millipedes are arthropods that typically live in a damp environment and feed on decaying organic material. You can find them near your house in flowerbeds, mulch, or piles of leaves. But they may migrate into your home during heavy rains that flood their habitat. They may also enter your home in search of water during dry periods. These pests are usually one to two inches long and feature worm-like bodies with dozens of legs. They typically do not survive very long inside, but homeowners still want to get rid of them and stop migrations into basements, crawlspaces, attics, and garages.
Signs of a Millipede Infestation in Your Home
Millipedes can be stealth creatures, so you may not notice any telltale signs of an infestation in your home. The only way many homeowners know about millipedes is by seeing them crawling across their floors or counters in search of food or shelter. If you suspect you may have a millipede infestation in your home, call Schopen Pest Solutions. We know where to look to find them before evicting them from your residence.

We use state-of-the-art equipment, reliable products, and many green pesticides. Each project is unique, but we will devise a plan to eliminate millipedes using sprays, powders, or bug barriers.

Here’s What Some Satisfied Customers Have to Say
Schopen was quick to respond to my initial inquiry and they accommodated a change in my
schedule. Luke arrived 10 minutes early and got right to diagnosing the issue. The source of the tiny
critters was found and treated. What a relief! I could not be more pleased with a company and the
service. (Office staff on the phone Kimm and Kiara were professional and helpful.) Thank you!!!
Everyone I dealt with was EXTREMELY knowledgeable. Pricing was fair. And best of all-my ants are
The guy called at the beginning of the time frame window and told me when he would be coming. It
is so nice to get a courtesy call when you have pets and kids. He was efficient and took care of what
Kevin did an excellent professional job with the required inspection. We then hired him to treat our
home for spiders. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.
We hired Schopen to deal with mice we began seeing recently. They were on time, and the Tech Corey was super awesome! He was very informative and explained everything. Listened to our concerns and gave good information back. He found potential entry points and filled them. We had hired a different company before them and wasn't satisfied. Corey went behind them and found some things the other company should have. We have already noticed that there is barely any activity. best part of it, they don't try to lock you into a contract like most pest control companies do, They let you decide what you are comfortable with.
This customer rated you highly for professionalism, responsiveness, and work quality.
This company was very responsive. Once they arrived at my house the workers were very friendly, explained the situation, and how follow up consultations worked. After the first and second follow up visit the company called to see if we had any other questions. Which was very thoughtful.
