Eliminating evil earwigs!
Submitted by Mary
The tell-tale sign of pincher bug (or Earwiggle) damage are tiny circular holes bitten into foliage and petals. To further confirm, go out at night, if you're very brave, with a flashlight, as they are nocturnal.
Leave out an old newspaper, slightly rolled. The scary bugs will take refuge between the pages. In morning, pick it up and toss it into the garbage.
