I cleaned out the nest box yesterday and was disgusted when I found earwigs wriggling around in the bottom of the box after I removed the straw. I tried to shop-vac them out but obviously enough of them hid from me because I looked under the fresh straw today and there they were again. I know my gals love to eat these things out in the garden but they're not eating them in the nest box. So, what to do? I'm assuming, or rather hoping, that they don't actually harm the chickens in any way. Do they? I read that you can control them with DE. Should I even bother? What do you think? For those of you who've never seen these creepy things here's one to feast your eyes on. The only insect that grosses me out more is the lovely centipede.
