Hello once again from Our Old Miners Cottage!
I have a very happy news to report from the potato plants! The earwig traps are going so well, most of the potatoes look like they're actually recovering. Firstly, the potato plants, in all their earwigless glory!
(Yes, the yellow plant is dead.. a casualty of the war, I'm afraid.)
Now for the absolutely disgusting pictures - feel free to turn away now - and if not, make sure you didn't just eat!
These earwig traps are made of yeast and sugar. They work so well.. well, you'll just have to see for yourself..
And to top it all off.. I have a little video. ;) Talk about ikky!

Hope you enjoyed all that, I know I did - the earwig war is being won, and the plants have half a chance again! (Now we can concentrate on all the usual factors like rainfall, watering, feeding, sun..)
No more dead earwig posts, I promise. ;)
