Hi everyone - I have searched the forum quite a bit and have a feeling these are likely non-harmful bugs, but would like confirmation, if possible. It's pretty hard to get a photo of them, so hopefully this video will work...

Last night I bought some pillbugs to help with population control because we are seeing more and more of these...

Thanks in advance, and happy Friday!

I'm not sure, but I don't think pill bugs eat other bugs. . . I think they eat the old food and poop. I wasn't able to see bugs in your picture, but I'm sure it's just the harmless bugs we all fight in our enclosures. The only way to get rid of them is to toss everything and start fresh, but you'll eventually get them in the new enclosure too. Part of life.
