How to get rid of pill bugs

LuckyDurazno(9)May 11, 2014

Has any one had any luck repelling or getting rid of pill bugs?

I prefer a natural way.
I have bean seedlings and these little bugs are eating them like there is no tomorrow!
I read that Diatomaceous earth works, but I'm looking for a different solution.
Thanks!

You could go my route with weevils and collect them in a bottle with soapy water? There are "board traps" were you lay a board or something down for them to hide under then some time later (a day or 2?) pick up the board and grab them? There is a product called tanglefoot, I'm unsure if that works for potato bugs but I imagine it would? I used it like a caulk gun to seal the two boards of my raised bed. :)
