removal of earwigs

How do I get rid of earwigs? They are in my plants (both in the ground and potted), around the foundation of our house, under any barrel/pot/stone.

Thanks for writing. Trapping can be one of the most effective ways of dealing with these critters; roll up a newspaper and set it near your home's foundation in the evening. Then the next morning shake the earwigs out into a bucket of soapy water.


Also: Watch for places the earwigs are hanging out (like debris piles, really dense perennials or shrubs, etc.) and try to eliminate them.
