Earwigs vs. winter sowing

15 years ago

I haven't tried winter sowing yet as I just found this website a couple of months ago. My question is, have any of you had problems with earwigs eating the seedlings before the secondary leaves come out or after transplanting the seedlings into the soil? I direct seeded cosmos, profusion zinnia, and marigolds and the earwigs ate them all! They left the allysum alone though. I ended up going to the greenhouse and buying cosmo plants and I'm doing without the zinnia and marigolds. I'm thinking that by winter sowing, the plants will be growing before the earwigs come out.
