Will neem kill earwigs?? The garden has been invaded

The best way to control earwigs is to change the environment, even for a short time. They need plenty of dark, moist hiding places so the spring cleaning of layers of leaf litter, for example, will send them running. Allow the areas to dry out a little. I would think that a conservative sprinkle of diatomaceous earth would be helpful, as well.
