... If it is earwigs, then her's my suggestion on how to deal with them (not for the squeemish!):
You can trap them by placing an upturned tin filled with straw near where they're most active. Periodically have a look inside and take out the straw and dispose of any inhabitants by burning. You can also trap them by putting some branflakes in a little cardboard box with holes in it. They also collect in habitats such as mulch, wet newspapers, rotten boards, etc.
