Includes a recipe for a liquid fruit and vegetable-based attractant for effective capture of earwigs. Earwigs hatch in spring, usually by the first week of April. They feed on other insects, plants, ripe fruit and garbage. Earwigs damage fresh fruit, seedlings, as well as the petals and pollen of many plants. They hunt at night and are attracted to warm damp areas. Earwigs that fall into wells contaminate water supplies. Long term use of the SpringStar Earwig Trap will reduce troubling infestations without the use of toxic chemicals.
