Where do Woodlice Come From?

by Russ on February 15, 2014

Taking a closer look at a woodlouse demonstrates some amazing images, including dozens of legs and compound eyes!One creepy crawly that is a common sight both inside and outside is the woodlouse. With 35 known species in the UK alone, there’s lots to discover about these small crustaceans, including where they come from.

Because they belong to the crustacean family, most of their relatives need to live in water to survive.

Woodlice are no different and must stay in dark, damp areas where there is plenty of moisture. This ensures they can both breath and reproduce.

The best places for them are under stones and logs in the wild, but finding their way under the doormat is an equally nice place to spend the winter!
