Today’s activity? Get outside! The weather is starting to take a turn for the better and now is a GREAT time to go looking for bugs, especially roly-polys. Do you have any medium to large-sized rocks in your yard? How about old logs or sticks? Try turning them over and seeing what you find underneath. Chances are good you’ll find some isopods under there. If you find some, take a few pictures to send our way – we’d love to see what you come across!
