What do millipedes eat?
November 11, 2016 3:03AM
Millipedes are scavengers which feed on decaying plant matter
such as leaves, fruits and vegetables, and damp or decaying wood
Feed dark leafy greens, pieces of apple or potato. Since they are scavengers, millipedes may wait until the food has begun to rot a bit before eating it, so don't be too hasty to clean out uneaten food. Remove really rotted food, replacing it with fresh foods every couple of days. They are herbivores. Most species live in and eat decaying plant matter.
