Unknown Bugs, LOTS of Them, Eating Crocus Leaves

I have NEVER seen these bugs before. They look look a cross between a water bug and have a millipede tail. I think they only come out at night and are literally all over them and the wall behind them. I tried to look them up but can't find them on the internet. HEEEEEELP, PLEASE.

This sounds very much like a Pill Bug or often called Sow Bug.

You can clean up the area to help eliminate their nesting area.

Pouring beer in small lids can trap the insects, much like slug control.
