The Earwig Wars

Posted by olemike on 05/23/2010

The earwigs have assaulted our garden with an army and a “take no prisoners” approach.  We decided to fight back with liquor.  Leona made this little trap with an empty koolwhip container and a Bud lite beer.  As she filled it, I heard her measuring out the dosage – “a little for the earwigs, a little for Mike”.  As you can see it was effective in catching the earwigs.  We will continue the fight as long as the beer holds out.  I enjoyed the battle as well.
