We're Under Attack

Normally, I rather enjoy rolly pollies.

But, just take a look at what the little bastards have done to my hostas.

How dare they! Wee little bastards.. Did you find a solution?

Michelle said...

I had no idea that they were so voracious! How do you get rid of them?

Kathi D said...

Wow, my chickens would LOVE those!

Lately, the only roly-polys I have are INSIDE THE HOUSE. What's up with that, I wonder?

Wendy said...

I've pulled back the mulch from around the plants and will be getting some diatomaceous earth to sprinkle around the area. I'll report back when I find something that works.

And Kathi D, maybe you could diaper up your chickens and let them loose in your house. I bet they'd have em cleaned up in no time. ;)

Ah, so sorry for your hosta. One of my favorite plants. As for those rolys - Gross! Sick little monsters.

Did you know that the latin name is Armadillidiidae?

(Armadillo-d-day?)

So says Wikipedia.

I was just looking back at this post and I realized that I think I found the reason. I had made a bunch of temporary paths out of cardboard and it provided wonderful shelter to all the rollie pollies.

We'll see how it goes this year.
