Slaters or woodlice are flattened, segmented, shield like creatures with many legs. They usually scavenge on rotting wood and vegetation and live in the garden. However, in high numbers and when they grow too large for the cracks and crevices where they hide, they can move indoors in search of new homes.

To get rid of slaters / woodlice:
