Woodlice are a widespread nuisance pest. They typically live outside and should as a rule be left alone as they offer a crucial service to the ecosystem of your backyard. However, when woodlice are indoors they may be a nuisance and can cause dirt or mess in certain areas. Woodlice are harmless and do not eat any wood that’s not already rotten, so an infestation can typically be taken as a symptom of damp in the home which should be rectified. The simplest way to eradicate a woodlouse infestation is to get rid of their food source, so make sure that any areas of damp or rotting wood are removed and treat the entire area with a dehumidifier.
Insecticide treatments can be effective at controlling a woodlouse infestation. To be effective insecticides should be used as a barrier around areas that the woodlice are entering through. Powder or lacquer treatments will kill any woodlice that enter and should discourage any more from coming in. However, they generally must be reapplied every couple of weeks.
Qualified pest control companies can survey the location and discover any damp or rotten wood which might be harbouring woodlice. They can also inform you of the best way to stop woodlice from re-entering your home if they are removed. If you have a very serious problem with a woodlouse infestation in the garden, experienced pest control companies will be able to inform you of the probable reason for this as well as how to remove the infestation. It is typically not encouraged to simply treat the area with insecticide to kill the woodlice as this may cause even more damage to the area.
