  • 100's of them!

    Help! My veggie garden is overrun by 100's and 100's of munching woodlice. How to get rid of them please.

    Yes! I have exactly the same thing. We may be miles apart but just now everything you say resonates with me. I've been worrying about all the woodlice round my potatoes.

      Give them woodchip mulch and let them help in the making of compost.

        Nothing to say except that they are related to prawns.

          But they are munching their way through the stems of my plants. All my french beans keep being eaten off at ground level and there are herds of them around the bases of my squashes too.

                      More useless facts. They don't urinate and they breath through their legs.

                          Ellos no orinan y la respiración a través de sus piernas

                          (according to google translate - does that sound about right?)

                              I personally would treat Google translate with a pinch of salt!
                              I would say it this way -

                              No orinan y respiran a través de sus piernas.

                              Orinan is the plural of Orina (to urinate) so you do not need "ellos" which means "they". I could go on but it might bore you. But a good try nonetheless.
