How to stop earwigs attacking seedlings and plants.

We have a lot of problems with earwigs eating seedlings and established vegetable plants.

Answer: Hi David,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Yes earwigs can be a troublesome pest in the garden. We have a product called Yates Pyrethrum that will help control them. Just be careful not to use it on young seedlings and apply the product when you see that the earwigs are active.

I hope this helps

Kind Regards
