​These bugs are all arthropods and are not actually insects.  Although they are unattractive and can be considered a nuisance when indoors, they do not cause any real harm. 

 Sow bugs & Pill Bugs:

Sow bugs and pill bugs can grow up to 2cm long and their colour is usually a light to dark grey.  These small land crustaceans need moist conditions to survive and feed on decaying organic matter.  Once inside homes they usually die relatively quickly due to lower moisture levels.

Harm and Damage:

These bugs do not cause damage to the structures in which they reside.  However, they can be unpleasant and upsetting to the occupants due to their presence. 

 Centipedes & Millipedes:

These bugs both have multiple body sections and many legs.  The centipede when encountered in a structure is considerably larger and faster than the millipede.  Both bugs are considered beneficial as centipedes are predators of other pest insects and millipedes feed on decaying organic matter.  Usually however millipedes die relatively quickly once inside a structure due to the low level of humidity. 

Harm and Damage:

These bugs do not cause damage to the structures in which they reside but they can be unpleasant and upsetting to the occupants due to their presence.  Also the centipede has been known to bite in rare cases.
