Control

The first issue is to deal with any dampness problem that has attracted the woodlouse in the first place. Do not have a log store adjacent to your house or let the undergrowth become un-managed against exterior walls.

Woodlice are seemingly harmless creatures, but often wander into our homes, causing people to reach for the nearest insect spray.

If you want to control or kill woodlice, we have a range of products that will help you do that, from insecticide sprays such as Dethlac Lacquer or Rentokil Insectrol to Woodlice Control Kits and Smoke Bombs. Natural dusts are effective providing the conditions aren't too damp.

Description

Woodlice are crustaceans related to slaters, shrimps, lobsters and crabs.

Woodlice control

There are about 35 species of woodlouse in Britain but the one you are most likely to find indoors is the common Garden Woodlouse.

  • adults are about 15mm ( 1/2 inch) long
  • grey speckled back
  • 13 horny articulated segments
  • small head
  • elbowed antennae
  • seven pairs of short legs
  • and a very short tail
  • breathe through air holes in the hindmost pair of legs

  • Lifecycle

  • female produces up to 150 eggs
  • they are contained within a pouch in her body until they hatch
  • when hatched they are released into the environment
  • the young woodlouse is about 2mm long and white in colour
  • only one generation per year
  • Habitats

  • Woodlice live in damp places and their natural habitat is woodlands, hedgerows and gardens.
  • They are occasional visitors into our houses and this is usually because there is a build-up of their preferred habitat just outside the house, ie. a log pile, leaves or other debris.
  • When they are found in large numbers within buildings, it is always because there is a damp problem, usually caused by a fault in the structure of the building, ie. roof tiles, valley gutters or other drains.
