Boric acid and organic gardening question

Hi All,
The target is earwings. And maybe add some soy sauce (they love fermented stuff) to increase the lure.

Will this mess up my organic garden with chemicals?
Many thanks, -T

boron/boric acide is a trace plant nutrient, but should not be used in large amounts as then it becomes a poison to plants.
instead of using poisons why not figure out the life cycle of the insect and spend the time on disrupting the life cycle at various times which may reduce the population to where the damage isn't so great?
i find it interesting though that in your arid climate you have an earwig problem while here in mid-Michigan where things are normally at least somewhat wet we don't see a ton of these bugs in the gardens. perhaps because we have a lot of birds around... hmm...
this site seems to have a lot of useful information:
