why are bark mulch bad?
several of you suggested that i should remove all the bark mulch in order to solve the over population of pill bugs.
i have several areas where i plant things. i only have one particular sunny area that has lots of pill bugs. at my other areas, i also have bark mulch on top of the soil. i think that they are good, because they keep the soil moisture. after a while, i can break those big bark into pieces. etc. they also keep the weeds from growing.
this particular area is about 1/8 of a basketball court size. so it will take a while to clean out all the mulch on top of the soil.
if there is no pill bugs, i don't see why the mulch are bad?
by the way, after i posted that first pic of pill bugs eating one live leave. today, i found out that those evil bugs finished the whole leave! that is a really big leave. now they probably killed this cucumber plant.
