I want to kill earwigs that are nesting in a children's playhouse.

Earwigs are great gritters in the garden as they eat all the rotten plant matter. The best safe way to get rid of them if they become a pest else where in the garden is to crumple up wet newspaper and place it inside old plant pots or used butter/margarine containers and place them around the effected areas. Earwigs feed at night and will hide in the newspapers during the daylight, so every day change the newspapers and throw them away in a plastic bag and place in the rubbish bin.
I had this problem around my veggie garden and they got inside my cauliflowers, it was so disgusting that I didn't eat any cauliflower for months and I don't grow them anymore. I also had a lot of grass clippings around my veggie patch which attracted them. I don't use mulch and am very careful now, and have no problems. I hope this helps. Cheers (06/04/2007)

How do you get rid of earwigs in a mailbox so they don't come back?

How to get rid of the "pinchy bugs"? They have the two pinchers that grab and pinch. They are black, approximately 1 inch big. I need something safe to use with children.

We are having earwigs flying onto the patio and other areas of our yard; how do I get rid of them? They will land on us and get into the house on our clothing if we are not very careful to get them off before going in, help!
