The most effective solution for eliminating sow bugs and pill bugs is to combine physical and chemical control measures. It is important to identify and remove any sources of food around the house. Then, destroy any potential shelters for these pests near the building (piles of organic matter on the ground are ideal hiding places for these little crustaceans), and seal any cracks in the structure. Identify and eliminate sources of humidity in the house. We also recommend ventilating the building to reduce the relative humidity and create conditions in which the bugs cannot survive.
Outside the building, a liquid insecticide or an insecticide soap may be applied in a 3 m (10' ) band around the building and on the foundation. If the insecticide is properly applied, a spot treatment using Maheu&Maheu Crawling Insect Killer
inside the house should be sufficient to limit the population of sow bugs or pill bugs.
