Pillbug Control

In the garden, consider:

Garden hygiene: These critters like to live and dine in mulch, rooting wood and piles of leaves; it is advised to remove these areas from your garden to reduce populations.

Lighting: Placing a bright light in greenhouses may draw these creatures out of hiding and cause them to move elsewhere.

Bait stations: Bait stations can lure and dispose of unwelcome guests by making or buying bait stations. These devices work by enticing the pests into the station using cheese, meats or other household foods.

Insecticides: Insecticides can be purchased from stores. These may also be used to prevent the Pillbugs from returning to the environment at a later date. When handling chemicals, instructions should always be thoroughly read and followed.
