Pillbugs / Sow Bugs

Identifying Pillbug / Sow Bug Problems

These really are not “bugs” (insects) but rather the only crustacean (like crabs and lobsters) that has become completely adapted to spending its life on land. Pillbugs and Sow bugs have oval bodies and seven pairs of legs. Pillbug & sow bug problems are easily recognized by their back, which is made up of seven hard individual plates. Pillbugs are sometimes referred to as rollie-pollies because when disturbed or threatened they will roll up into a ball (looking similar to a pill).

Locating Pillbug & Sow Bug Infestations

Pillbugs/Sow bug infestations feed on decaying vegetable material and are most active at night. They are known for their ability to roll into a ball. Pillbugs/Sow bug infestations live in moist locations. They are found under damp objects or under vegetable debris.

Pillbug & Sow Bug Threats
