Rollie pollies, also called pillbugs, could survive mostly on soft, decaying matter, like grass and leaves, and still live between two and five years. They can also safely eat fish food, fresh vegetables, and even crumpled-up cardboard.

Decaying vegetation.

I have googled the diet of nearly any insect native to our areas, lol, due to my bug catching kids.

If you love someone, set them free. If they come back, it means nobody else liked them. Set them free again
