Woodlice, or pillbugs, are decomposers, and are normal to find in the leaf litter, compost, and upper layer of soil. They are not harmful, and are considered beneficial in creating compost and turning soil. As there is an exception to every rule, occasionally, they have been known to munch on strawberries and young seedlings. If you protect your seedlings against cutworms, they will be protected from the rogue pillbug as well. I have never considered them a problem.

Well my 4 compost bins have woodlice snails slugs etc. Its part of the composting process i.e. They speed up the composting! Leave it longer and they seem to vanish.
