what to do with........earwigs.

some gardeners say they do alot of good, others just dispatch them.

What do you guys do???

Don't think they do any good......

They are a nuisance.  They gather under my pots around the house so every now and then I lift the pots and kill them.  I guess the wildlife guys will kill ME for saying that but it's what I do.  If they do good tell me someone.

I really like Woodlice - they're crustacians, not insects (although apparently they don't taste like lobster )

They don't carry any disease, and hand around nr dead vegetation or wood - they don't eat anything alive.

So next time you see them, think of prawns or crabs or lobsters - they're amazing!
