are there more earwigs out and about than normal? i've noticed them a lot lately, but it may be because i've been doing a lot more gardening than ever before. the other day i was at an agway store, and overheard some people inquiring about earwig control --- that they're seeing them much more than usual. and another person recently commented that she's seen a lot of them this year.
i hate clipping a flower, only to have one of these critters drop down to my hand from the flower. the other day, i was watering, i noticed a stone out of place. moved it, and discovered a swarm of them clustered beneath the stone. i also created a small rainstorm or earwigs when i opened our door a couple weekends ago -- they were crawling all over the inner edges of the door.
