Rollie pollies eat decaying plants or other vegetation... sometimes we need a bit of vegetarianism in our life.. to help clear heavy energy.

They are found in most regions of the world...a common thread among human children... the young often have a closer sense to nature and observe better than in adulthood where stagnant energies stop the flow of chi energy in nature.

They grow by molting...a shedding of old and outer layers..
Teaching us to let go of habits and ways that are no longer necessary
With the ability to curl in to a ball and roll away from potential danger...
Similar to that of some jujitsu techniques used by human beings
Being on the ground can be a grounding and centering event.
Most children at one time sat in a circle close to the Earth Mother
And it is good to reconcile with her nature.
Rollie Pollie


Thank you for reading and may the weather stay fair with cool breezes your way, ATS!

My cousins forced me to eat them when I was a kid.
They called them pill bugs.
Taste like crap.

Tricks... eh????

Once... As a kid... I changed the hands on the analog clock from 7pm to 12am...
It was x-mas eve...

Try pulling that one over on parents......

Also... rollie pollie used to live in my neighborhood. But they were very small and grey.
No vegetation apart from the park 50 yards away. S&F

a reply to: Pinocchio in my home, x-mas eve was when the parents did all of the wrapping and if one was in need of the latrine, then you still had to pretend you didn't "know'' and could not pass passed the living room space where the activities of Santa or his spouse were getting things ready for the big event.
So life was difficult, just having to pass urine, but not allowed to.
No tricks, just wierd

These are called wood louse but I grew up calling them 'pigs'.
It is strange that they have so many different names.
en.wikipedia.org...


Names include:

"armadillo bug"[2]
"boat-builder" (Newfoundland, Canada)[3]
"butcher boy" or "butchy boy" (Australia,[4] mostly around Melbourne[5])
"carpenter" or "cafner" (Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada)[6]
"cheeselog" (Reading, England)[7]
"cheesy bobs" (Guildford, England)[8]
"chiggy pig" (Devon, England)[9][10]
"doodlebug" (also used for the larva of an antlion)[11]
"gramersow" (Cornwall, England)[12]
"granny grey" (South Wales)[13]
"pill bug" (usually applied only to the genus Armadillidium)[14]
"potato bug"[15]
"roll up bug"[16]
"roly-poly"[15]
"sow bug"[17]
"slater" (Scotland, Northern Ireland, New Zealand and Australia)[18][19][20]
"wood bug" (British Columbia, Canada)[21]

They can be called pests too and to control and deal with them, not bugging you wither presence and or directing them into areas of garden, cedar wood or hinoke essential oils dissipated in 90% proof vodka and distilled water in spray bottle may be effective.... just three-9 drops off each oil... little is stronger than lots.😊ww

I know there are also lemon type oils for bugs, but wood for wood dwelling ones is more genital and homeopathic to work within their given nature ¶
