Active Season

  • Pillbugs are most common during Spring and Summer
  • They are mostly found in gardens and mulchy areas
  • An indoor infestation generally means a large outdoor population

Interesting Facts

Cause for Concern

  • Pillbugs will not cause damage, but can infest interior potted plants

Town & Country Can Help

Customer Preparation

  • Most Pillbug treatments can be completed in the affected area alone which would need to be avoided for 1 hour. If the entire home does need to be treated, people and pets will need to remain out of the house for 1 hour
