Sowbugs

6343 Found in interior window frame March 31, Mississauga, ON. Some live, some dead. From Mississauga, ON

Number 6343 These are sowbugs, terrestrial crustaceans in the order Isopoda. These basically are harmless scavengers on decomposing organic matter, but they sometimes become nuisance pests when large numbers occur indoors. They breathe through gills that must be kept moist, so moisture management is the best control.
