Getting Rid of Millipedes

We have what we think are millipedes in the garden, when it gets dark they climb up the walls and around the patio door. Then they disappear when daylight comes .I have read all the facts about them, but am unsure of how to get rid of them. We are afraid to use an insecticide as we have 4 doggies. Any suggestions please?

They are attracted to moisture. Make sure all leaks are fixed and use a dehumidifier.

wow I always thought those things were cool looking. we live near a rainforest so see them all the time

so maybe they're diagnosing the fact that wooden structures in your home such as decks and walls are waterlogged or rotting for they love decaying wood. If you have any falling wooden structure in your land you best get rid of it, or if you store firewood make sure it's dry

aside from that, simple wood ash like from a fireplace is a good deterrent for them, in addition to diatomaceous earth www.getridofthings.com/.../

aside from that

Hi There..
We are in a new build house and don't have decking...So we have nothing that is rotten to attract them
