Earwig traps

I've decided to set up some traps for the menacing earwigs that have been pestering my veggie patch. They're simple to make; simply scrunch up some newspaper and stuff them in terracotta pots. Then place the pots upside down where the earwigs frequent and hopefully they'll use the pots as hotels for the night.

Well yesterday morning last I checked they didn't stay in them so it might be a while before they'll use the pots as refuse. And when I do find them inside I'll just set fire to the newspaper!
