Woodlice can become a problem in houses with either damp or lots of decaying foliage around.
This house had both. Lots of leaf litter around the house provides lots of food and shelter for woodlice.
The woodlice are in such numbers that a fair amount are getting trapped in the cellar from walking down an old coal shoot.
Once trapped in the cellar they dry out and die but cause concern for the customer.
The cellar was sprayed with a residual insecticide and advice on how to proof the coal shoot door was given.
To reduce the threat more the leaf litter and bushes can be cleared from around the house removing the food and harbourage of the woodlouse.
