Pillbugs

Anyone else have problems with pillbugs getting in their formicariums? My setup is in my basement and I have on open top outworld so I know they are getting in through there. My ants have a garbage dump in one of the chambers and based on my research pillbugs eat decaying matter so I'm sure that's what they are after. Any reason why I should be concerned with them in there? I'm keeping Camponotus.

Pillbugs and Camponotus have a symbiotic relationship.

I suspected as much since I find them together anytime I turn over stones. Just worried with them in captivity (overprotective parent :lol: )
