Even before I finished my basement, spiders and pillbugs have always been in my basement. However, now that it is finished, the pillbugs are quite the nuisance. Seems like every week I am vacuuming up 10-20 off the floor (mostly dead) or wall. Is there any way to repel them from entering the house?

RE: Pillbugs

you know these things come in cycles. Our first year in our new home the pillbugs invaded. At night you could see them crawling up the sides of the brick house. We vaccumed them up and that was it. Next year, no pill bugs. Too soon to tell this year. You might try a general pest control spray around the perimiter. Be glad it isn't ants or roaches! Pillbugs are messy but kind of a stupid bug and to me a nusiance but not terrible.
