What's eating my bulb flowers?

I went out to the bulb boxes at 9:30 pm with a flashlight, a camera,  
and a determined attitude. I found three tiny slugs, no more than 3 mm  
long. I found six earwigs, a couple of them actively eating bulb  
leaves. I did not catch anyone eating bulb flower petals but one  
earwig was lurking suspiciously close to an Ipheion 'Jessie' with big  
chomps out of its petals.


I did not find any cut worms. But I did not rake through the sand or  
grit mulch where they might be hiding.

There is a thick fog mist so any slugs in the neighborhood would be  
out. All the leaves were coated with dew.
