What is this caterpillar? Does it eat wood?
January 10, 2010
We need to know what this is and if it eats wood because they are appearing all over our home. It is 1 inch long and only about 1/8 inch wide.
This is a Millipede, not a caterpillar. They eat decomposing matter and will not harm wood. The Star Bulletin Hawaii News website has an online article on Millipedes in Hawaii.
Thanks for the quick response!!! 🙂
