Pill bugs have demolished my violets for two seasons. What can I do?

RE: pill bugs

Here in Baltimore, in about mid-March I begin scattering my Violet plantings with epsom salt. This is just the regular epsom salt that one can find in the drug stores in 3lb. rectangular boxes. I continue scattering the espsom salt around the base of the Violet plantings once a month, until mid-October. Seems to help blooming and dissuade bugs/slugs. Attached is a photo of my Viola striata growing under a large white oak tree, in our back yard.
