Oh, I hate to see that! Earwigs are my clematises' worst enemies.

I never got to using my Ortho Bug Geta for any clematises so I am surprised they only feasted on that one plant - every blossom.

I use Deadline Bug Bait. It works on snails, slugs, earwigs, and sowbugs, but I think it has been banned in many states.
