Any suggestions for a backyard with amazing abilities to grow these creatures? It has been so moist this summer the earwigs are abounding! A friend has a 7 mth old and would like to be prepaired for next spring when the little one is out and about. It took 14 very long years to have this child who is a hemophiliac. No chemicals what-so-ever are used around him, they keep everything as natural as they can. I think I heard that growing chrysanthemums kept them away but I'm not sure.
