Pest Control Database
Millipedes control is not easy. Thick armor saturated with mineral salts perfectly protects the body of pests against the toxic effects of biocides and plant protection products. When the chemical method is not always effective, then a non-chemical treatment group should be used. The simultaneous implementation of all available methods of controlling millipedes guarantees that pests are kept in such numbers around the plant that they are not harmful and they do not pose a threat to the food being produced.
There are many species of millipedes. Below we present the most common ones.
