So, I planted out some eggplants and cucumbers a week or two ago and every night the plants were getting smaller. The nibbling pattern didn't look like slugs or caterpillars, so Terry went out one night to see if it was pill bugs. Well, he saw hundreds of hungry earwigs chomping away on the eggplant, cucumber, and fava bean plants. Every year there is a different pest challenge. This year it's earwigs.
In the morning we went back out and saw no earwigs in the traps. I googled around some more and found one suggestion to add soy sauce. So I added a little soy sauce to the traps. The following morning, the traps were not where we left them. They were crunched with puppy dog teeth and left strewn about. Bacon apparently likes the smell of soy sauce. It's back to the drawing board.
