How to Get Rid of Earwigs on Basil Plants

madame chu chu added on June 26, 2014 | Answered

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.
