Sowbugs in Prescott
Image via Flickr by March Hare1145

Sowbugs are a wide group of crawling pests in the same family as rollie pollies or pill bugs. They are decomposers, meaning they primarily eat dead plant or animal matter, and this makes them great cleaners in the wild. However, sowbugs can be a nuisance to the plants in your home or garden as well because they can also eat living plants. They are also known as woodlice, but this is just a common name, and lice are a completely different branch of insects. Sowbugs are technically crustaceans, just like crabs, crayfish, and barnacles. They belong to the only group of crustaceans that live on land, shared with pill bugs. Although they live on land, they require plenty of moisture to survive and will avoid dry places. You probably have seen sowbugs in your Prescott, especially during the summer and wet seasons.
