Earwigs on Artichoke Plants

My secret recipe for earwigs is to make earwig traps. Take a basic plastic container with a lid, I usually use a container from sour cream or dip. Wash out the container and using a hole punch, punch 4-6 holes just under the container lip. Pour a little vegetable oil & soy sauce in the bottom of the container, this should shallow, about 2-3cm deep. Place the lid back on and stick this trap under or next to the plants being attacked. The soy sauce lures the earwigs in but the oil makes it so they can't get back out.
