Pill Bugs Pest Control

Pill bugs—the term denotes an insect, right? Surprisingly, these roly-poly bugs are more related to shrimp, lobsters, and crayfish than to insects. When you take a look at their scaled, armadillo-shelled exteriors and their tendency to curl into a tight, round ball when in defensive mode, they do seem to be more akin to their sea-loving cousins.

In small numbers, pill bugs have a positive impact on global climate control and bode well for your soil. But an overpopulation of pill bugs in your home isn’t desirable. For your home’s interior and exterior, a pill bug infestation can decimate plants like hostas, pansies, and daisies, to name a few.

That’s why it’s important to understand how to control and manage pill bugs around your property.
