My potted herb garden is completely infested with earwigs! I mean they are thick! What am I going to do? I have some DE coming (had to order it online because I couldn't find it around here anywhere), but I don't know when that will be here. Is there any other organic way to control these, kill them, get rid of them. Oooo, I get the chills just thinking about it there were so many.

In most cases, earwigs are "beneficial insect" as they like to eat aphids and other bugs. If you want to get rid of them, there is probably an insecticide labeled for them. Make sure you aren't creating more trouble, though. They may be there because they're eating other bugs, and if you kill them, you might end up with a different bug problem. Keep a close eye on things.
