  • HOME

Sowbugs are not able to retain water in their bodies, so they spend most of their time in damp places. Outdoors they hide under logs, rocks, flowerpots and trash cans. Sowbugs eat organic debris and decaying plants.

Since sowbugs and pillbugs require moisture, they do not survive indoors for more than a few days unless there are very moist or damp conditions. Frequent sightings of these pests indoors usually means that there are large numbers breeding on the outside, close to the foundation.
