how to get rid of earwigs on basil plants
One of my basil plants in a pot has tiny black spots on some of the leaves. They do rub off. But the new baby leaves are being eaten, I think, by earwigs. How do I get rid of earwigs and what are the black spots?
The black spots could be scale insects, or aphids, or even spots of sooty mold. A good treatment of neem oil should take care of whatever those are, as well as unwelcome diners.
