Okay, is there something I can do about sow bugs. Hate those as much as slugs but not sure if there is a preventative method to get rid of them other then insecticides.
Help, I hate Sow bugs
You have to dry out their habitat - I don't know if that is doable in Oregon. They aren't insects, they are tiny crustaceans with gills. They have to stay close to moisture/damp, but don't actually need standing water.
