You can find Pillbugs and Sowbugs all over San Diego County. These "critters" are most closely related to Crustaceans, like crabs and crayfish, they require areas of high moisture for survival. Pillbugs and Sowbugs eat decaying vegetation, although they also may attack turf, as well as fruits and vegetables. Sowbugs and pillbugs can live up to 2 years. Females produce a batch of around 25 eggs that hatch in a little pouch on her side. The babies are carried in this pouch for about 45 days, and then they are able to open the pouch and leave on their own. After shedding again the female regains the use of the pouch and she may have several broods each year. Pillbugs are up to a half inch long, dark gray in color. They are capable of curling up into a tight, round ball when disturbed. Bugs Bee Dead can do a barrier treatment with a alternative natural product that will eliminate many of them as they crawl against the foundation and building perimeter.
