Get Rid Of Pesky Earwigs In Your Lawn With A Simple Diy Cardboard Trap

0 6

While any kind of cardboard can be used to make an earwig trap, corrugated cardboard is the best option, thanks to its ridged design. Cut a piece of the cardboard, about half a foot wide, and roll it into a tube with the ridges of cardboard facing towards the center of the roll. Then, use string or tape to secure the tube closed. Once the trap has been constructed, you can tie it to a tree or place it in a protected space in your garden. After a few days the trap should be filled with earwigs to dispose of.

To make your traps even more effective, you can bait them using bacon grease, fish oil, or wheat bran. Dampening the cardboard first can also help make it even more appealing to earwigs. Once you’ve caught a tube full of earwigs, don’t forget to dispose of them properly so they won’t just escape back to your lawn. You can either empty the cardboard tube into a bucket of soapy water or seal the earwigs in a bag and throw them away.
