This may seem like a dumb question but: I don't know what earwigs are. Is there another common name for them? What part of the country are you in?

Hi Snshin1027,

We have them in 'controlled numbers' so they aren't a problem.

Visit Earwigs at Google.com for a plethora of links.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

I've had problems with earwigs when I had a lot of mulch around the foundation. Thinning the mulch cut way down on the earwig numbers. Also the mulch from shredded leaves and green sticks attracted them more than dry wood mulch.

Try thinning out damp mulch and shrubs around the foundation, especially where it touches the foundation.

Find out a little more about earwigs.I always had a phobia for these things until I read an article some time ago that they feed on another little critter that escapes memory.They could be a sign of another problem (Aphids maybe?).Check out Jay J's link...they eat spiders too!
