    Earwig Problem, Help!!

    Hi Guys, i was wondering if you could help me with a problem I have. I have earwigs around my hot tub, and i'm unsure of what to do! it has been a dry summer here in the UK so i think they see the hot tub as an attractive place with its water. We have these cushion float things that we normally keep outside the hot tub, and when I put them in today, earwigs started crawling out of them into the water!! Any tips?

    Ewww... earwigs are creepy. The only bug I jump for... the only imaginary bug I jump for actually.

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.

    Get some diatomaceous earth, but not pool grade (doesn't work on bugs). Sprinkle or dust around your hot tub and anywhere else where creeping pests are a problem (ants, aphids, silverfish...). Works like a charm so long as it is dry - reapply after rain or watering. DE is generally not harmful to pets or people, although I wouldn't inhale the stuff. I hope that helps!
