Getting Rid of Woodlice (Sowbugs) in the Vegetable Garden

Carpenters or woodlouce (a small black crawling bug sometimes found in your home) as we call them in Canada are eating my beets. How do I get rid of them? Thank you.

Sprinkle diatomaceous earth around the plants; also you can clean out tuna fish or cat food dishes: something about the same size; and fill with oil; they cannot get out once they get in! Good luck!
