Since Ontario has banned earwig pellets and I am overrun with the pests, I've been looking into ways to deal with them.

I read that they are attracted to fish oil. Our local dollar store has sardines 3 for $1 I thought I might get some and smash up the sardines, add more oil and set them out on half buried margarine containers with holes cut at ground level.

I don't want to go to the trouble if it's unlikely to work.

Has anyone used this kind of trap for earwigs? How do you deal with them?

RE: Earwigs

I'm pretty sure there was a thread either about earwigs or that had info about them somewhere here in the past year or so. Search at the bottom of the page to see if there was - you'll probably find your answers there. :)
