PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Oval, green plastic “domed” shaped traps used to lure earwigs inside where they can’t escape. Earwigs are ferocious feeders targeting protein in the form of dead bugs, meat and nuts. These traps allow you to bait earwigs using any of their preferred baits and then set them up where earwigs are active.
Traps feature a “moat” you’ll need to fill with water and a single “drop” of dish detergent. Next place some peanut butter or nuts in the center cup where you see the finger pointing. This food will lure earwigs inside and once they enter the water, they’ll drown.
Traps “snap” apart and together making for easy maintenance and can be used inside and outside the home.
Place traps every 10-20 feet apart once prepared.
WHERE TO USE IT: Outside in the garden, around the home’s foundation, inside the home along baseboards, in cabinets and under appliances. Basically anywhere earwigs have been seen.
RATE OF APPLICATION: One trap for every 10 feet of area you suspect earwigs may be active.

Can you send me a photo of what the traps look like inside please? How do you clean them out, and what stops the earwigs escaping?
Tech Support says
I wish we could but this trap has been discontinued and no more are available. One of the big “problems” with the design is what you were asking about; there was nothing to stop the earwigs from escaping. Our glue traps (seen above) use ground up insects for bait earwigs seem to love. They’ll readily enter the trap and in turn, get caught on the glue so its a true trap. If you need a good inside option for invading earwigs, this is a good design. For international shipping, order here:
