Garden pest issues

Kaur | May 12, 201703:44 PM    

I made a small garden bed. Its full of compost, Peet Moss, garden soil and mulch on top. I planted Zucchinis, Tomatoes, Pepper . But now I see whole bed is full of sow pills/bugs. Earlier I thought those rollies are good for the yard but when I saw my Zucchinis are being eaten by them, I got scared. I picked the big caterpillars by hand during night. put Sluggo plus around the plants. But its not ending. And now I see my zucchini plants being eaten up and I think its cut worms. I see Zucchini is harvesting but leaves are being eaten up. I even spray neem oil + water + dish cleaner soap solution every other day. But nothing seems to be helping at this point. Every day I wake up and look at those, I feel so sad and depressed. Need help here with those pill bugs/ cut worms. I am in San diego area.
