Go out after dark with a torch and you will find earwigs.

I've had a problem with 'Golden Trumpet' variety ... thrips were the cause and I've cut it down to the ground!

Could you post a picture, so that we could see the exact symptoms? Exactly how it is turning brown is important in the diagnosis.

I use Wilkinsons own brand "ant and crawling insect killer"which costs £2.58. It dosnt mention earwigs on the spraycan so I found two earwigs prepared to take the test,a quick spray , and within the minute they were both asleep.
