    I didn't realize pillbugs caused damage :confused: This year I seem to have brought a number of them inside with the plants and I am always squashing them but only because I don't want the min my house. I never realized they could cause damage to the plants because I have never seen evidence of any damage, at least not yet.

    I used a Deadline drench on my vandas that got infested with bush snails and they are all gone. The bush snails were munching on the root tips. I would walk out in the morning and they would be wrapped around the tips chewing away.
