    Default 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.

    Bussinspain's request for advice seconded!

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

    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.
