    They keep appearing in the bathtub and last night she wanted a bath and when she saw her companion was going to be a cute little woodlouse she freaked out and demanded I remove them.

    She is now annoyed at me for not sorting the problem out being the man and all that. I mean,I reckon they are coming out the plughole,sometimes they come with a few pals ,as they are no where else in the flat as believe me she would have moaned and they always appear in the bathtub and stay in the bathtub . What does she expect me to do, shrink and go down the plughole and give them all a good kicking?

    We live in a ground floor flat, thoughts?

    By the way woodlouse are these

    i always thought woodlice were kinda cute

    you could always leave the plug in the bath when you're not using it? although it does seem unlikely that they are coming up that way as there'll be a u-bend or some other form of water trap. so unless your woodlice enjoy a good swim i don't see how they can make it up there

    I am the opposite! I literally get shivers up my entire body whenever I see someone killing an insect. Dead insects (particularly dead spiders) make me FREAK OUT. Ha ha, alive.. I am happy. If I see one dead/dying, I have to control myself from going into an attack. I have no idea why, I just think it's disgusting. Once a spider came down from the ceiling, hanging from its web, DEAD, right in front of me as I was pouring myself a drink. O_O Had to get out of the kitchen and pretend it wasn't there, ha ha

    Aw, I like woodlice. In primary school, we had to write a story about if we woke up one day and turned into an animal... I wrote about turning into a woodlouse and rolling down the stairs and stuff. It was a cute story, in my opinion x.

    Ew woodlice.. something that's creepy about them. The little shell it has and the legs. I'm not one for the killing of most lil creepy crawlies though, I'd rather get someone to capture it and set it free outside

    They won't be coming in through your pipes - probably through an air vent or under a door.

    it's your chance to man up and be the fearless manly man... throw them outside, but don't kill them though - that's a bit weird tbh.

    If you don't know how to take advantage of this situation, you're an idiot.

    Dress up as a cleaner, say, "Hey baby, shall I get rid of all those woodlice for you? :sexface:" She'll scream please, yes please! At this point, do it, asap, use the cleaning products, leave the floor shining, and say here we are [...pet name if you have one for her...], and that's atleast a blowjob. Then ask her, would you like me do to anything else? She might say X and Y, just stfu and do them, regardless of what they are and that's you gettin' laid son.

    Make sure (with her permission), you stick it in the arse, for me, bro! :yy:

    If there's any insect to be afraid of a couple of woodlice (woodlouse?) are definitely not it.

    They are usually nocturnal and extremely timid. They are hardly pests... having them around might mean you have a bit of dampness somewhere. They don't damage wood or anything.

    I remember in my old house when I'd come down at like 2 in the morning for a drink of water there would be like a family of them on the floor... A couple of huge ones and some little ones scurrying around. As soon as they know something is near them they all pretend to be dead heh. Awesome little creatures.

    And there are certain types of aquatic woodlouse species but I'm not sure if they can swim/clime up pipes.

    Unless you've got a wooden leg.

    If the landlord cheaped out on installing a downstairs bathroom the overflow pipe might just be a pipe straight through the wall - in which case you'd get cold draughts blowing through it - woodlice could come through that I guess.

    puff some of that ant powder around ifi you need to look like you're doing something - might end up with hoards of them jumping into the bathtub to die gruesomely though.

    That's what I was thinking.


    They're hardly poisonous spiders or anything.
