SOW BUGS (ROLY POLY)
Sow bugs are nocturnal and crawl about sidewalks, patios, and foundations. In the daytime, they take shelter under stones, flower pots, boards, compost, or anything resting on moist soil.
They can enter crawl spaces, basements, or ground floor structures through door thresholds, expansion joints, and voids in block walls. They are known for their ability to roll into a ball.
