Earwigs!

I detest the sight of Earwigs inside or out!
But... did you know they eat spiders and cockroaches, (they prefer to feed on soft-bellied insects0,
and also consume the eggs of snails and slugs? But they will also eat your vegetation.

I still HATE 'em! LOL

Re: Earwigs!

Remember how much Charlie hated Box Elder Bugs?

Deb and I are like that with Earwigs. LOL

Probably stems from when we lived up north and they infested our well. They were horrible that year!
Had pieces of them ( heads, legs, wings and etc.) coming out the tap! Eewww!

Poured a couple of gallons of bleach down well, and resealed the cracked top they had got into, and used store bought water for 3 or 4 weeks while waiting.

Ran the hose wide open several hours each day to flush the well clean.

Still makes me shudder.
