A pillbug is an insect and non-perishable food item.

Usage

Fishing

Main article: Fishing

Pillbugs can technically be used as bait for fishing. However, current fish only respond to littel bait fish, worm, cricket, grasshopper, cockroach, and maggot as bait, so doing so is not advised.

Foraging

Main article: Foraging

When foraging, pillbugs can be found on natural_exterior tiles, such as grass, sand, and gravel. They are equally common in all foraging areas, and can be found in all seasons but Winter, March through November. However, while forageable in Spring, they are less likely to be found in March and April than other months.

Pillbugs are part of the "Animals" loot category.

Having the fisherman occupation or angler trait will increase the player's ability to find pillbugs.
