Safe Pesticide for Hummingbirds and Butterflies
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.

I personally love neem oil. It is devastating to pests that eat/bite/chew on plants and completely harmless to insects and animals that do not. It is highly recommended by even honeybee specialists and with the problems that honeybees are having, you know if it would hurt them, they would not recommend it.
