Hi Folks -

My home in Northern New England is infested with earwigs. The ants are pretty bad this year, too, but it is the earwigs that are driving us nuts.

I'm not talking about a few bugs along the house foundation or in the kid's sandbox. Literally every nook and cranny on the property is inhabited by hundreds of earwigs. if you leave anything on the ground, within an hour or two there are dozens of earwigs living in it. The kid's wooden swingset is infested. The mailbox at the end of the driveway is infested. We kill at least a dozen in the house everyday. Last night, there was one crawling on my toothbrush! It's like a Hitchcock movie.

I've tried spot applications of Diazanon and Dursban, with limited success. What I need is a program to eradicate the little buggers for once and for all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
