Where Do Sowbugs and Pillbugs Live?
Sowbugs and pillbugs live in cool damp places. They are often found near their sources of food. For instance, you may find these bugs under decaying matter such as mulch and compost. Sometimes, they may also be found under logs and stones.
How To Control A Pillbug/Sowbug Infestation
- Remove or destroy the homes of these sowbugs. Try to spread out or remove piles of leaves, mulch, debris, and other organic matter near your house.
- Ensure plants have proper air circulation by trimming them. This prevents dampness around the surfaces of plants
- Ensure the mulch used easily allows water to pass through. This reduces prolonged dampness of the mulch which in turn discourages sowbugs.
- If the infestation is large, call a pest control service. They’ll assess the damage and recommend the most effective control method for you.
