but as much as I can. My house is old and cottage style bricks, at night it started off with a few Woodlice outside the house on the front door steps and now there are hundreds climbing all out on the front of the house walls, climbing up nearly to the roof of my house, all over the steps, everywhere in the night. I’m so worried I just want to get rid of them all. Please please someone give me some advice, I’m so worried they will end up coming into the house. I’ve tried searching about it but it’s all regarding inside the house. Please someone give me some advice. Thank you

It actually took me quite awhile to figure out what was going on here. It just occurred to me that what you call "woodlice" in your country is what we call a "Pill Bug" or "Roly-Poly" here in the US. Here in the US, We have "Bark Lice" which is also sometimes called "Woodlice".

Now that I know exactly what is going on, I can help.
