    My purps have been catching a ton of pillbugs, and it stinks. Mealybugs are destructive, and hard to get rid of.

    There's a matter of size too. The body of female mealybugs, excluding "whiskers" or "tails" will be around 1/8 of an inch. Pill bugs are in the 1/2 inch range. I suppose younger pill bugs will moult their exo-skeletons but these will not dissolve in alcohol.

    Mealies are a ***** to get rid of. You can use rubbing alcohol and/or Bonide makes a Mealie killer spray too.
