  • ROFL!!!!!!!! I've never heard of a rollie pollie invasion before! But dead bugs outside tend to attract more bugs, so whatever you do.. try not to kill them... try to find something to make them not want to go there... I know sunlight works? maybe cut down some trees lol..

  • Try cinnamon oil. I'm not 100% sure it will work for rolly pollys but it works for ants.
    just make sure that you dilute it and that any small children you have don't get it on their face or or hands. It's not poisonous or anything. But it burns!

  • you can find cinnamon oil in your local health food store. it's an Essential Oil. just buy a little bottle of it (remember, it IS an oil so it won't take much) pour the whole thing into a spray bottle and then fill the rest of the spray bottle with water. Walk around the house and spray all the areas. If it works, it might kill some of them, but mostly they will just want to stay away!

  • What's a "rolly polly"? Do you know its proper name? If I knew its proper name, I could probably tell you how to get them to go away.
