Good question. Crying or Very sad 

Earwig "traps" are useful in some regard in that they reduce the numbers somewhat. Also, checking places where they sleep/breed. Which is often under pots (or under the pot and in the drip tray), under stones.. under everything... Sad
It gets tough when the recommendations for them and other pests is "remove mulch/organic matter" .... ummmm ...

Ours are quite partial to soy sauce - with a dash of vegetable oil to drown in.
