Trap and remove them. Here is a technique using cellulose packing peanuts: “My fail proof method is to sprinkle the cellulose packing peanuts (NOT the plastic ones) around on the ground where you’ve seen roly poly bugs (we’ve always called them potato bugs, probably because they roll up in a ball). Overnight, the potato bugs will collect to feast on them and you can just scoop them up and dispose of them.”
Another method for trapping them is to place a ripe cantaloupe cut in half, with the hollow side down on the ground overnight. In the morning turn it over and collect the hundreds of pill bugs.

So I'm a little bummed. Been having a bad day. Just to make me a little more grouchy I've been listening to non-stop helicopters for over a week now. There's a big wildfire near Flagstaff right now and the choppers are coming in about every 30 minutes to our airport to load up water and head back to the fire. The airport is on the big hill close to my backyard. I know they have to do it and I can't be angry about it but..... And it doesn't help that the Cicadas are so damned loud this year.
I'm trying not to be Debbie Downer right now. And I will keep looking at my list and try to stay positive. I thank you all so much for your help. Please keep your fingers crossed for me!
Happy gardening, everyone.
