Description: Adults grow to about 3/8 inch long, have a number of rounded body segments and seven pairs of legs. and are capable of rolling into a tight ball when disturbed, a behavior that resulted in their common name, "roly-polies." Their oval shape gives them their common name, pill bug.
Pill Bugs are terrestrial crustaceans, and are more closely related to lobsters, shrimp and crayfish. They even have gills. When their aquatic habitats dry up they leave in search of other bodies of water and occasionally invade homes and structures, hopping about.

Life Cycle: Females lay eggs that they carry in a pouch underneath the body. Eggs hatch into young sowbugs and Pill Bugs that resemble adults but are smaller. They remain in the pouch up to 2 months after hatching. Development to adults occurs in about a year and they breed mainly in the spring. They may live up to 3 years. Up to three broods may be produced annually.

Pill Bug Diet: Pill bugs feed on decaying organic matter and are considered scavengers. Usually, they will feed on decaying plant matter; however, if there is no adequate food source available, they will occasionally feed on decomposing animal matter as well. Pill bugs do not present a health threat and cannot cause structural or significant agricultural damage. Sometimes, they may hurt young plants but will not feed on them enough to kill them.
