Safe Pesticide for Hummingbirds and Butterflies

Anonymous added on January 13, 2014 | Answered

I have a hummingbird and butterfly garden. Last year the garden got earwigs that decimated many flowers. I was afraid to use garden pesticide, so I bought an organic one. I had very poor results. Can you give me the name of something safe to combat earwigs, etc.that won't harm the wildlife but is strong enough to make a difference? Thanks so much.
