When kids were older, and in bed by 8 (or 9?), I loved the late, quiet hours that were all mine...another reason why I hated to go to bed when I should have
Yes, rollypollys, pillbugs, woodlice (in UK), etc. I use a lot of wood mulch, etc., and they're supposed to limit themselves to eating up rotting material. But in spring, they find teeny seedlings very tasty... like carrots. (I think I would, too!)
Love all your info about ducks.... I think they'd figure out that pillbugs are tasty. (I originally got 3 chickens as my pillbug exterminators... but they had to learn to eat them, too!) And they are really lovely, quiet.... yes, quiet!! I forgot their #1 advantage for me! I live in a suburb
If I can figure out how to 'easily manage' their very valuable manure.... hmmmm.
