Rolypolys

Post by mxxlane » Thu Jun 28, 2018 12:32 am

I found a rolypoly in my crabitat and am unsure how it got in there. I know they’re harmless but everything is always cleaned/boiled before going in. Does anyone know how they get in there?

Did you add anything new, or from the outdoors?
They are beneficial to your crabitat, they eat waste. I breed mine and put them in my crabitat each month.

That's too funny! I have no insight, but it must have somehow traveled in on something. Perhaps it was on moss or ee?

Sometimes they are found in potted plants as well. :) They can't climb glass, so you must have brought it in on something.
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com
