New Gardener

Hi all! I'm new! I actually just managed to find the time to start my garden. It's something I've always wanted to do. I actually have some questions. First, I have been at war with the earwigs. Every night I'm out there spraying them, but somehow I never spray enough of them. I come out in the morning to find new devastation. Is there anything else I can do to stop them eating my plants? Second, I bought a Hops plant, but I'm not entirely sure how to go about planting it for best results. I found a good spot where it will have lots of space to grow really tall. But is lots of direct sun good for hops, or do they prefer shade? What kind of soil do they like best? Besides just plopping it in the ground, is there anything else I should do for it? Thanks! ;)
