They eat the blooms and the leaves. No signs of slug trails, and i've got earwigs that keep coming into my house, so i'm sure they're living in abundance in my yard.

Any clues as to where they’ve come from and why they are hanging around? Earwigs, or pincher bugs, can be a nuisance but it is possible to get rid of them. Not even bugs can resist bacon.
