DIVERT EARWIGS FROM WHERE WE DRY OUR HOT TUB SWIM WEAR ? Answered

Basically wife and I enjoy an evening hot tub dip, under a deciduous tree in a large garden.
Then with robes on we drop the swim wear and hang it on a wall of our house to dry.
The next morning my wife usually finds a resident earwig in her swim suit.
I can only surmise the larger one piece suit holds more attractive moisture for the bug which would have to travel five feet up a newly painted lap siding wall to reach a pot-metal dual hook. 
There are no night lights. We live at 5500' in a desert climate and the garden is automatically watered morning and evening three times a week
My wife wont let me put a 24 volt charged tape because we watch grand children daily.
What to do ?

Hang your suites on a line where the suites do not touch the wood.

One earwig or are we talking an invasion here?
They love closed spaces that are cuddly.
Either make holder that does not let the robe touch any wall at all or present them with an alternative.
Clay flowr pots, upside down and filled with staw are a perfect home for them.
Just place them in easy to reach places.

The suits are touching the wall.

Is it accessing the suit from the hook, or is the suit touching the wall ? Most insects don't like copper, I wonder if you couldwrap copper wire (un-energised) around the hook ?
