Earwigs were eating my marigolds. I figured there were a lot of little ones around because they stripped a couple to skeletons on Sunday night.
When I discovered it on Monday I went to mix up a concoction of Molasses, Oil and Soy Sauce. No Molasses-- so I substituted corn syrup. I mixed it in a baby food jar, buried it and propped the lid over it. I had to be out on Tuesday, but I checked it when I got home around 3.
Wonderful--The jar was over half full of baby earwigs that will be eating no more of my Marigolds I threw out the bottle and bugs and made a new trap this time used a big prescription bottle. We'll see what I will get with this one.
This has to be the best trap for earwigs. Better than earwig bait or anything else I've tried and believe me I've tried most chemical or organic traps. I'm also happy Corn Syrup works because I usually have it on hand and don't use Molasses for baking, so it takes a trip to the grocery.
