Woodlice – Order Isopoda

History

These are grey/brown animals with a shielded surface similar to a slated roof, hence the common name of ‘slaters’. Adults are around 5 – 17 mm long, depending upon species. The order Isopoda contains more than 10,000 species worldwide and all woodlice need a damp atmosphere in which to survive.

They are only found where the humidity is high.

Why Control Woodlice?

Woodlice are harmless to man and do not bite. However, they are considered a nuisance pest and there have been reports of woodlice causing damage to soft fruit

Methods of control

  • Identify the source eg damp timber etc and where possible remove
  • To prevent further infestation work to lower moisture content in the air
  • Carry out a spray treatment with an approved residual insecticide in any areas where woodlice are encroaching
