Hi,
Growing Perpetual Spinach growing in containers. The plants are healthy, however there are multiple holes etc appearing on the leaves.A recent slug hunt produced earwigs attacking the leaves. Would be interested to hear from anyone experiencing earwig related damage and how it might be limited.
Thanks

Generally the amount of harm caused by earwigs is minimal. Earwigs are mostly considered beneficial insects because they eat aphids and slugs and other pests..

But if earwigs are in large number they can cause damage. Its not a problem im familiar with though
