I use woodlice of all sorts in my terrariums.

UK woodlice tend to work just as well. Pest introduction is a concern, but you have to remember that UK pests are normally at least a little bit selective in their host choice, so a Vietnamese or African or whatever invert is at less risk than a UK natural.

You should be fine using UK woodlice - anything like mites etc are obvious, and most nematodes are quite host selective so probably wont jump to your tropical inverts.

If in doubt, buy those sterile ones mentioned previously.
