Pill Bug

Description:

Pill Bug

Pill Bug On Wall

Pill Bugs are normally ¼ to ½ inch in size.  They are gray in color with two antennae.  They have a hard shell that covers their entire body.

Behavior:

Pill Bugs are active at night.  They feed on decaying vegetable matter and prefer moist living conditions.  These pests will usually quickly die in a structure from dehydration unless there is a moisture source like a leaky pipe.  They will also inhabit basements and crawl spaces.

Control:

A pest control program is recommended for pill bug control. Other control measures include reducing moisture sources and plant cover close to the foundation of the building.

Fun Fact:

This pest has the ability to roll up into a ball shape for protection.
