I think we can all remember a time when we were kids and we found these curious little creatures in the garden, under rocks and logs, or simply strolling through the grass. They are often called rollie pollies, pillbugs, or woodlouse. Rollie pollies are characterized by their ability to roll up into a tight ball when they feel threatened.
Releasing thousands of pill bugs can actually clean up large areas of toxic soil safely while protecting the water table. If rollie pollies can clean up such horrible byproducts of manufacturing, think about what they are doing to help your garden soil! That’s an “ah-ha!” moment, right? It’s pretty fascinating that such little creatures can give you clean, healthy soil.
