Wood lice and their eradication

Zone Fleetwood, Lancashire. | robert_holden2 added on October 10, 2016 | Answered

I am having trouble with wood lice, thousands of the little blighters, although there are no pieces of dead wood lying about. They have ruined a crop of swedes that I was growing, seeming to take a particular liking to them. How can I get rid of them permanently?
