Woe is my beans...

So, I have asked at few different places how to get rid of rolly pollies.  I planted my Kentucky Wonders in the same pots and place that I had them last year, and one of the pots was overrun with rolly pollies who were demolishing my tender new bean plants!  I was furious!  Those little buggers can eat a lot of things in my yard, but not my veggies!

This has posed quite a problem for me since I hate using chemicals on my garden, which is why I don't even try to grow broccoli, cauliflower, or cabbage any longer.

Any way, I read that I should sink a little jelly jar into the dirt there, and fill it with stale beer and make sure the dirt goes right up to the edge.  The idea is that the little buggers will go up for a drink, fall in, and drown.

Guess what?  It worked.  I no longer have a heard of rolly pollies devouring my beans!  YAY!
