Question
I found a lot of pill bugs in a raised garden plot i plan to place green beans seeds in. Are they good for the soil or bad?

Answer
Hi
They normally will not bother your plants and most will disappear when you work the soil. Once you work the garden there will be less and less. You can place coffee grins around base of plants to keep most bugs off. I hope you plan on growing Organically!
Hope this helps you.
