PILL BUGS

Pill bugs are common inhabitants in gardens and landscapes around buildings. These creatures belong to the crustacean family and are one of the few crustaceans that have fully adapted to life on land. These creatures live primarily eating dead plants as well as live plants when there are no dead plants. Although uncommon, these creatures can become pests.

  • When pill bugs are high in quantity, they can consume all the dead plants in a very short amount of time. 

  • Pill bugs will eat any living plant that has contact with the soil indiscriminately.

  • Placing potted plants on concrete create a  "desert" for these creatures to traverse.

Many solutions involve removing the hiding spots for these creatures. Under objects in damp, cold areas are the most common living places for pill bugs.
