Newspaper is the best way to get rid of pincer bugs, or earwigs in the garden. Take the pages of newspaper, roll them up lengthwise and then flatten. Next, dampen the paper and then lay along the rows of your plants. The next day, remove the paper and discard, as the earwigs will have crawled inside the creases of the paper. Repeat this process several times a week and the earwig problem should clear up.
