Facts And Pest Control On How To Get Rid Of Earwigs

--- advertisements ---

Earwigs, or pincher bugs, like to eat decomposing plants and wet leaves. They invade your flower beds and gardens, and they may even invade your home. Follow these steps to get rid of earwigs either naturally or with chemicals. You can also learn how to get rid of earwigs invasions before they happen.

Make a can trap. Place shallow tin cans (like cat food cans) in your yard. Fill them with 1/2″ (1.25 cm) of vegetable oil. This will attract the earwigs, they’ll crawl in and drown. Dump and refill the cans as needed.

Make an earwig-attracting roll trap. Roll up an old newspaper and place it near the base of your plants around sunset. (Alternatively, you can cut up sections of an old garden hose.) Empty these earwig traps into a bucket of water every morning, or place the inhabitants a long, long way from your garden bed and house.

Make a shoebox trap. Poke some entry holes in the outer sides of a shoebox near the base. Place a thin layer of oatmeal or bran in the box and put the lid on it. Leave it on the porch or other entrance area around or in your home to trap the earwigs.

Encourage natural earwig predators like toads and birds in your yard. The animals that prey on earwigs will help reduce the population and keep it under control. This means making your garden of interest to birds or toads, by having food sources (plants they like, etc.) and shelter opportunities.

Attract toads by allowing plants near your house but not adjacent to your house to grow wild. Or place some bricks on the ground, lay boards across them and put plants across the boards. Either of these steps will create a shady environment for toads.

Draw birds in by putting out a bird feeder or nest boxes. Plant bushes and trees that supply berries, etc. that you know for sure the local birds like. Birds may also visit a clean bird bath.
