Found primarily in areas with high humidity. These bugs can be found under rocks, logs and leaf litter. An infestation indoors means that the moisture levels in the home are high. To help prevent infestation, make sure attics and crawl spaces are well ventilated. Remove leaf litter and other organic debris from the exterior of your home and be sure to seal any visible cracks. Keep planters away from windows and keep mulch less than 2 inches thick.
