I have had a lok at the type of wood louse you have said and I can now see where I went wrong.

Aka slaters?

I had an infestation of these in my house. Fortunately they do not eat through wood nor carry disease so there are far worse things that could infest a house. I found loads of what I thought were dead ones under the stairs but then I read that they shed their exoskeleton! A relative of the shrimp family, they don't like central heating.
