Pill Bug Bites & Treatment

The pillbug is often considered a pest when it gains entry into a home. Although they sometimes enter in large numbers, they do not bite, sting, or transmit diseases, nor do they infest food, clothing or wood. They do not spread diseases or contaminate food and are a nuisance simply by their presence.
