Leave Pillbug And Sowbug Control To Terminix Canada
Your home is no place for pillbugs and sowbugs so get rid of these humpbacked crustaceans for good with Terminix Canada pillbug and sowbug control. More similar to shrimp and crayfish than insects, they’re often called roly poly bugs due to their bodies appearing like segmented armour. Pillbugs and sowbugs inhabit dark and damp areas of your home like basements.
Pillbug and sowbug infestations occur in homes since these pests feed on organic material. Attracted to mulch, leaves and other plants in your yard or by your foundation, these flat, oval creatures are tiny enough to breach properties through doors, windows and other small gaps. Scurrying when disturbed, pillbugs and sowbugs can’t survive for more than a few days without water. This means homeowners often find them dead on the floor.
When you’re wondering how to get rid of pillbugs and sowbugs, turn to Terminix Canada.
