Now, I am a girl that was bought up in the country and I like all of natures little beasties. I am fine with spiders and snakes and all those other things that make some people shudder.
But, I have a real problem with earwigs. I just don't like the little blighters.
They seem to get everywhere! I always seem to find them in my washing when it is hanging on the line - how do they get up there?!? - can these pesky little devils now fly or are they hitching a ride on a passing bird?
And if I don't shake my washing enough before I bring it in, then they snuggle down in my clean laundry waiting to surprise me - I found one happily ensconced in my knickers this morning. Not what I wanted to see at 6.00am.
I am sure they have a purpose in this world but I would be very grateful if they could go and do their business elsewhere thank you very much.
