How to rid Earwigs?
This week, 'not today,' has been beautiful!!!
90's and sunny.
Since Monday, I've been repotting plants that have been in the same containers for a good number of years, starting w/Agaves. Repotting outside.
BTW, I despise creepy-crawlers, for those who do not know me.
But, I was prepared. I brought out the vinegar and a fly swatter.
Anyway, it took muscle removing some plants from pots..
Besides ants, 'yuck' on the bottom of pot, near drainage holes lived numerous earwigs.
They ARE disgusting.
Here's my question.
Is there any organic product that kills earwigs?
Does anyone know of any foods/natural products, etc, earwigs dislike. For instance, a distasteful odor or taste? Or better yet, something that kills those disgusting creatures without harming plants?
Meyer Mike once told me earwigs eat roots. He mentioned, watering his plants. The following morning, around 5am, he entered his gh and found earwigs on top of soil.
Guess those ugly creatures rise from lower soil early in the A.M.
I had no idea we had so many earwigs. When we first moved here, 20+ yrs ago, we'd see earwigs in most dark areas. Basically everywhere. Then, it seemed they disappeared.
Well, 'They're Back!'
Any ideas? Thanks, Toni
