The Pillbug


Pillbugs eat decaying vegetable material and are most active at night. They are known for their ability to roll into a ball.


Pillbugs live in moist locations. They are found under damp objects or under vegetable debris.


Pillbugs do not spread diseases or invade food products. However, the pillbug is often considered a pest when it gains entry into a home.
