Indigo vs Pill Bugs

I've been struggling against pill bugs (as have a couple other indigo parents who have gotten in touch with me). They seem to be munching on both the leaves and stems of my new transplants, mowing the smallest down to just a little stump in the soil.

I picked up this tip (and image) from Silver Lake Farms on how to handle them.

Partially bury a shallow tin container (cat food, tuna fish, etc) with a mixture of 75% to 25% vegetable oil to soy sauce at the bottom near your affected plants. The mix will draw the bugs in where they will perish!
