Satisfied Customers
We are so happy using Bulwark Exterminating! We have been using them now for over 4 years and we haven't one complaint. They are timely, provide great customer service and follow up, professional, and always get the job done right. Today we had Ron come out for a yellow jacket problem and he was very helpful. Not only did he spray but he took the time to speak with me about what else I can do to rid my yard of the yellow jacket nest. I have referred Bulward to my friends and will continue to do so.‎

What Do Pillbugs Eat?

Food is usually decaying organic and vegetable materials, although they also may attack living plant tissues and turf, as well as fruits and vegetables.

What Do Pillbugs Do?

Pillbugs are closely related to crustaceans, such as crabs and crayfish. Like these other crustaceans, they breathe with gills and therefore require high moisture for survival. Their gills are located on the underside of their body and must be kept moist so they often live in damp basements and cellars or anywhere in a house where water leaks. Pillbugs can live up to two years, and they continue to molt throughout their lifetime.

How Do Pillbugs Reproduce?

Females have leaf-like growths at the base of some legs, which are brood pouches for holding developing eggs and embryos. Females produce a batch of around 25 eggs that hatch within a pouch on her ventral side. Females may have several broods each year.

Interesting Facts About Pillbugs:

Pillbugs are the only crustaceans totally adapted for living on land. They roll up into a ball when disturbed and are very fast walkers.
