Regularly repair rugs, finding bugs (7)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'bugs' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'regularly repair rugs' is the wordplay.
'regularly' indicates alternate letters (regularly take one letter, leave next etc.).
'rugs' becomes 'wigs' (rug is a slang term for a wig).
The alternating letters of 'repair' are 'ear'.
'finding' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for earwigs that I've seen before include "eavesdrops", "Bugs", "Elongated insects", "Insects", "listens in furtively", "Eavesdrops on the insects" and "Insect with pincers".)
