Pill bugs, also known as sowbugs or “rollie pollie,” feed mostly on decaying vegetation and do not pose a great threat within the garden unless over population occurs. If this happens, marigolds can often take care of the problem. Pill bugs are found under logs, stones, and in damp basements. Keeping your homes and the areas around them clean and dry will also help.
