earwig infestation

  As I was harvesting a head of butter crunch lettuce last night i notices some holes in the outter leaves, when i cut the head hundreds of earwigs (pincher bugs) scattered out. upon closer inspection my whole garden is infested!! Today i traeted the whole bed with food grade diatomaceous earth which is an organic white sand like substance. fingers crossed!

Re: earwig infestation

  • Good luck!  Hopefully you cut that lettuce open in your garden and not in your kitchen!!!
  • i did but lots of those buggers stick! i drowned them in dish detergent after washing the lettuce the diatomaceous earth worked well though!
