Frequently Asked Questions

What treatment do you provide for woodlice?

An insecticide can be applied but woodlice often inhabit a property due to dampness. The outside walls of the property should always be kept clear of debris to prevent the onset of dampness.

I thought woodlice were garden inhabitants, why have they come into my property?

It is quite possible that your property has some form of dampness somewhere so, therefore, the outer walls may be holding the moisture.

Can I treat the woodlice myself?

Yes you can treat woodlice yourself with a crawling insect spray from a hardware store. Always follow the products instructions carefully.

Is a woodlice an insect?

No, woodlice is a crustacean, which is the same family as a crab or lobster.
