Pill bugs

Pill bugs are found all over the world and in the U.S. When disturbed they will roll up into a ball and many people refer to them as “rolliepollies”. Pill bugs are about ¼ inch long and black colored. Pill bugs are not actually arthropods and not insects. They are confined to high moisture areas, thick vegetation, and under rocks, boards and structures. Pill bugs feed on decaying plant and animal matter and are harmless pests. Control can be achieved by removing grass clippings, mowing regularly, raking leaves and spraying on a normal basis.
