Ball Bugs Eliminate Heavy Metals From The Earth, Don't Hurt Them


These small oval-bodied animals are called Rollie Pollies or also known as ball bugs. They are characterized by their defense mechanism which, when feeling danger, twists in such a way that it manages to form an almost perfect ball. The most important thing is that they do not represent any danger to humans, but they do have a positive impact on the environment.

These little ones are not even bugs, the rollie pollies are characterized as crustaceans, which brings creatures like crabs closer, but after hundreds of years of evolution, they have become accustomed to living underground. It is very common that you find them in humid places which is where they find the greatest nutrients.

If at any time you thought about ending the ones in your garden, it is better to consider it since they do an extraordinary job for your garden.

The good thing is that these animals feed on the remains of plants. In addition, they clean the earth of heavy metals. They consume lead, cadmium, arsenic, copper, and zinc, leaving them highly capable of resisting any adverse conditions.

Another important benefit that these animals leave is leaving the soil free of contaminants. So it is vitally important that you try to keep it as close to your garden and orchard as possible.

It is advisable to create an optimal space for its development and it can be done by placing the organic matter in the soil, this will keep them busy and focused on caring for the soil of harmful food.
