Keep Pests Out Of Your Garden With This Genius Newspaper Hack
Too many earwigs can ruin your garden because they will start to munch on anything in sight. If you want to get rid of them, try an easy, budget-friendly solution: damp newspaper.
According to Tony O’Neill of Simplify Gardening, "Earwigs can be trapped using damp, rolled-up newspaper [...] placed near the base of the plant at night."
Since the pests are nocturnal and thrive in dark, damp spaces, they will find the newspaper a welcoming environment and hide there. Then, you can dispose of them in the morning.
