What are those bugs called?

I went out to go check on my little plant that I planted awhile back but those damn lawn cutters chopped it off I was sad but after the freeze is over I noticed a little stem coming out so now Iam nutrition it back to health... Lol anyway I covered it with a plastic pot with holes when I lifted the pot there were at least 10 little bugs I think they are called rollie-pollies or doodle bugs which is the correct name for these cuties I just put the pot back and left them alone.

  • Put mulch around it in a big circle so that the lawn mower can't get close. I would take the cover off. It needs light.
