The adult woodlice is about 15 mm in length, quite
flat, and slate grey in colour.
The woodlouse is not an insect but a crustacean
that has 14 segment and 7 pairs of legs to its body,
which gives the woodlouse the flexibility to be able
to curl into a ball to protect itself from danger.
Woodlice come indoors mainly during the winter and early spring, usually searching for protection from
the onset of cold weather. They do not come indoors to breed, but there may be a colony of woodlice
near an entrance to the house.
After mating, females carry their fertilised eggs in a small brood pouch under their bodies. The young
hatch inside the pouch and stay there until they are big enough to survive on their own.
Their average lifespan is 3 – 4 years.
Woodlice, like other crustaceans have gills and require moisture in order to survive.
