I have a big earwig problem. Last year they attacked and destroyed a few things but this year they are off to a big start. They are destroying a bunch of bean sprouts, they ate some dill sprouts, they are chewing on parsley and carrot leaves. They actually killed a parsley plant. Oh and they chewed the heck out of some marigolds.
I can't direct seed anything cause it gets attacked. I hear about putting a wet newspaper out at night and in the morning they will be hiding in it then you discard it earwigs and all. I tried that but when I check in the morning around 8:30 am the newspaper is all dry. I was thinking about putting a wet newspaper inside a grocery bag hoping it will hold the moisture in better.
Is there other methods to hit them really hard? I was thinking about getting Diatomaceous Earth but not sure it works on them and also a little worried that the DE would also harm the good bugs.
