I found a little pill bug in my soil and he went underneath my soil and it is soaking wet, will the plant die from the dead bug in the soil or will it be okay? I tried catching the bug but he went deeper and deeper... I need to know if this will harm my plant or not, it was only a small pill bug like the size of a pinky finger nail

snap em up!!!

Pill bugs only feed off of dying foliage and rotting fruits and veggies. He shouldn’t hurt the plant at all, if you see him again feed him to dewy.

But.... He went underneath and I kinda injured the bug and I gave up so I covered the soil back up... But yes I give dewy ants due to his small size

He won’t hurt the plant or the roots even if he is dead or hurt. I’m sure dewy really appreciates the ants. If you want him/her to get more dew I would put him/her in full sun all day

I fed my b52, today! Here I'll post the video I made this out in our garage and of course the little pill bug fell in the soil so I paused the vid and continued it when I found another pill bug! The plant seems very happy with it's meal but sadly I couldn't really capture the moment it went snap!

snap em up!!!
