Millipedes are small arthropods that can be found in many places all over the world, including Arizona. They have long cylindrical bodies with hundreds of tiny legs and come in a variety of colors. While these creatures may look harmless, they can become pests if left unchecked and cause health risks to humans as well as property damage.

Millipedes in Arizona are usually divided into two major groups. The first group is the Desert Millipede, which is found in desert regions of Arizona and can be identified by its reddish-brown color with black bands around its body. This type of millipede feeds on decaying plant matter, which helps to break down organic material and return it to the soil. The second group is the Yellow-Banded Millipede, which is found in areas with more moisture, such as around ponds or near rivers. This type of millipede has a yellowish-brown body and black bands on its back. Both types of millipedes are usually harmless, but they can become a nuisance if their numbers become too large.

Millipedes are usually nocturnal, which means they are most active at night. During the day, they will hide in damp and dark places such as under rocks or in leaf litter. They can be found near homes, especially around foundations and doorways where they often seek shelter from the elements.

Signs of a Millipede infestation include an abundance of millipedes in the house or around the yard, droppings on floors and walls, and damage to wood or paper products. If you see any of these signs, it is important to take action quickly as millipedes multiply very quickly if left unchecked. Millipedes can also be a health and safety risk as they can carry diseases, such as salmonella. They can even cause skin irritation or even an allergic reaction in some people.
