They don't think much of them, they just mind their own business since the janitors are busy doing their job Razz

DONT get them straight from your garden and throw them in, you need to 'detox' them first. You dont know if they have any toxins in them.

However if you want a starter colony of UK woodlice pm me and I will send you some with a care sheet

Raise them by themselves in a terrarium for a generation or two.
