Where are pill bugs most likely entering?
 
I seem to have a decent amount of pill bugs, beetles, and centipedes in my basement. It's not a huge infestation or anything, but if I pay down duct tape and check in a few weeks it has maybe 10 on it.

I'm suspecting these are all ground bugs, so they are probably entering from small cracks in the block foundation, or even the seem between the floor and the foundation. I watched a centipede once and it actually does fit in there! This is like a paper thin seam, not a crack.

I'm thinking if I find a good caulk and seal all the cracks and seams I can see, I should reduce the amount of bugs by a lot, think it would help?
