How do you keep from pitching the little beggars?

For everything isopod - breeding, keeping, and as clean up crews. Also known as pill bugs and rolly-pollies!

Most of the time the crabs food dish is pretty much empty when I go to refill it. But one of the guys went down (doubt he molting, just partying down under going by the noise). So the dish was getting sort of fluffy. Ended up having to pick through it with a flashlight to get all the baby isopods out. Dumped them in a clean medicine cup and then hauled them back to the tank. Wasn't exactly thrilled with picking through the residue of the food dish, LOL. Took a bit to get it all out from under my nails. Anyone have an easier way? I would have used a toothpick, but I didn't want to stab any of the little fellas.
I can hear my 75g whispering from the barn.
