for Stacy who called in on the radio show today…..

One of the ways to rid your garden of earwigs is to roll up a newspaper, several pages, put a rubber band around it and set it out in the garden overnight. In the morning it should be full of the nasty little buggers and you can dispose of the paper/earwigs/etc by putting the paper in a plastic bag and in the trash. Repeat. I have also used the cardboard roll from a roll of paper towels.

You can dust for them using a pesticide, but I HATE to do that because I have a pet.

You may also want to call the local extension office, 377-2107 and ask them for the latest techniques for ridding the garden of earwigs. A link to their site is to the right on this page, in the blogroll.

Good luck.
