Earwigs are destroying everything I plant at the moment (salad/brassicas/herbs/clematis). It's definitely earwigs as I've done a midnight raid with a torch & it's swarming with them. I've tried upturned flowerpots with straw in, but this barely makes a dent in them. Does anyone have any other tips before I try to obtain some Agent Orange?

You have to find out where they are hiding in the day-they like dark places-so that is my only suggestion

As with all pests with legs what you do in your garden doesn't stop them strolling in from next door.

Others may have their own suggestions of course
