Casualties of war

Taking some advice from the funny Sustainable Gardening Australia's European Earwig page we made a few earwig traps using beer. It worked! The trap located near the most badly effected potato plant was the one with the highest earwig death count.

Hopefully this means the plant has a chance to recover a bit. We'll be doing this again, for sure! Hooray!


  1. I wonder if I should pour beer in my ears to prevent earwigs. Ha Ha. Good that you're using natural combatants instead of chemicals against the pests.

  2. looks like you're winning the war of the earwigs. Good for you. And good researching on your part.
