Pill Bugs

Pillbugs, also know as sowbugs, potato bugs and wood lice, are known for rolling up into an armadillo like ball when threatened. They’re also known for getting into gardens and eating all the plants and vegetables you’ve worked so hard to grow.

While they are primarily outdoor pests, they can also establish a presence in homes when there is an abundance of moisture along the outside foundation wall. As they require a substantial amount of moisture to survive, they are attracted to the wettest, shadiest spots within your home. They have the ability to find their way inside your home via the smallest of cracks in the foundation or slab.

If your home accumlates moisture along the walls, you will not only be at risk for pill bugs, but also other insects that feed on them including crickets, centipedes, milipedes and ants, which are also all are attracted to moisture.
