Controlling earwigs from coming under garage mandoor.

Asked October 20, 2018, 11:16 AM EDT

They keep collecting at each corner of door and leaving a mess. The door is kept closed, but find their way in. Have had handyman look at door threshold, but says maybe it was put in wrong and not an easy fix and since it is a garage not a house probably not built as well. So he suggested using some kind of bait just outside door. Do you know of a nonpoisonous one or do I have to use something stronger. And where do i put the bait----on ground, just outside door? Thanks
