    Nooo they're rolly-pollys!

    I used to build forts for them when I was little, they were all over the concrete out behind our house! I had no idea they were harmful?

    You can always try barrier things like hot sauce around the outside of your doors...that sort of stuff works for lots of different pests.

    When I Googled Potato bugs originally, it came up with some type of ant looking insect. So Pill Bugs is what I use when referencing them..lol!

    I got this awesome spray at walmart a few weeks ago, it's in a white can with a green lid. It's ant and roach spray, eco friendly, safe for kids and pets(that's literally what the label says).

    The ingredients are all natural(and edible). The first one is cinnamon oil. I think it cost like $3? It sure makes my house smell good, too

    Might be something to try?
