that's my kill

Our yellow peppers are under attack by earwigs. They come out at night and eat the youngest leaves and flowers. I found out last night when I noticed four of them feasting on young shoots. As a real farmer my eyes got bloodshot and mercilessly I killed three, one was lucky enough to escape. I'll get him (and his mates and his family and his friends) - tonight.

How could that happen? Despite the fact that we decided to keep the plants indoors as the others planted outside were eaten by birds or something. Who for Gods sake would do this? Bloody bastards. Sometimes it is more than I can take.
