Safe way to eliminate earwigs from vegetables

I believe a lot of what's eating my peppers and basil are earwigs. I usually end up using Seven to take care of any pests, but is there a "organic" or less toxic method of eliminating them?

I would use insecticidal soap, ultra-fine horticultural oil or a product that includes those. Be sure to spray under as well as on top of the foliage.
