Million legged Wood Destroyer

Millipedes do not usually chew on your home, however if conditions are right they will eat any organic material.  Moisture is key and if your home or wood debris under your home is moist it can become food for all sorts of wood eating critters.  If the organic material (wood) is not actively holding up your home it should be removed.

Yep, just as I thought. Whenever I have the need to see something disgusting, all I need to do is visit your blog ;-) Good reminder about making sure your crawlspace is free of wood.
