Although they are called sow bugs and sometimes woodlouse, like the pill bug, they are also part of the crustacean family. These 1 cm long creatures are unable to bite or sting humans.
When inside a home, it typically indicates that there is a large population of sow bugs outside.
Like the pill bug, these creatures also feed on dead and alive plant life.
They are flatter than the common pill bug and cannot fully roll into a ball like the pill bug.
Cold and damp places attract the sow bug and removing the circumstances for them to live is the best way for a homeowner to deal with sow bugs themselves.
