While refreshing my MM from last year with compost this year, I noticed I had roly poly and centipedes in my last years MM.

Looking around I see that roly polys may or may not be a problem, so I signed up for home depot to notify me when they get more Sluggo Plus.  But a search for centipedes didn't return anything. Not that my searching skill are impeccable...

I did search Lowes, HD, and Ace for Sluggo +. Will check online Amazon, et al .

Do I need to sound General Quarters?   Very Happy

Try local nurseries. I bought the 2nd to the last 2.5 lbs. SP on the site that OhioGardener posted. Looking online, it looks like slim pickings for SP right now.

I was losing my baby starts to sow bugs last fall. In desperation, I lightly sprinkled SP on the bed AND sprayed with spinosad. Just tossing this idea out there.

Maybe you can buy direct from Monterey. https://www.montereylawngarden.com/product/sluggo-plus/

Are centipedes good, bad or indifferent?

I think they’re good; they are predators, I have never had any troubles from them.

What SR said. Centipedes are generally beneficial creatures. Centipedes feed on soil-dwelling mites, insects, insect larvae, baby snails, and slugs.
