Woodlice will feed on plants already damaged by something else but generally only feed on decaying matter. Their mouth parts aren't strong enough to pierce the outer surface of most plants. I sometimes find them inside soft fruit like strawberries but you can bet your bottom dollar that a slug or a wasp made the initial hole.
I've had good results using nematodes (Nemaslug) to reduce the slug population here. They seem expensive but not when you consider they only cost the price of a couple of decent plants. You need to use them twice a year to be effective.
