    I did a google search on A.vulgare and I got this information from a site:

    "Pill bugs live in an arrangement where the father reigns supreme. He guards the burrow in which the family lives. The monogamous pair (the mother and father) gather food for the entire family. Then, the entire family cleans the burrow of faecal pellets. Faecal pellets are carried outside the burrow around the entrance. In February the family disbands and the young set out to make new families of their own. However, the juveniles will always stay within 10 to 100m of the family's main burrow."

    This is amazing to me!
