Woodlice:

What are they?

Adult woodlice are slate grey in colour, have 7 pairs of legs and are between 2.5 to 18mm long.  They are crustaceans and are closely related to crabs and lobsters.  They evolved to live on land but still need damp conditions.

Woodlice avoid light and are active at night, feeding mainly on dead or decaying plant material.  By day, they are usually found hiding under stones, plant debris or damp wood. In autumn however they may enter homes through air vents or under doors in search of shelter for the winter.

Woodlice do not harm people or damage buildings but can still be a nuisance.

How do they live?

The female lays eggs in a pouch underneath her body. after about three weeks, the eggs hatch and young woodlice emerge.  The young look like smaller versions of the adults and regularly shed their shells as they grow.

In the UK Woodlice breed during the summer months only, producing between six to two hundred young in a season and have a lifespan of between one and four years.
