I have earwigs and pillbugs that I’d like to get rid of, so bought Dr Earth Final Stop Yard and Garden Insect Killer. But I also have earthworms in my raised bed, which I don’t want to kill off. Is this product safe for that?

If you do a soil drench (mix the solution with water and pour it around your plants) this could have a negative effect on earthworms. It does require complete saturation to kill insects and earthworms are extremely resilient so it would take some aggressive application to kill them. It may deter them from the area for a small period of time. In summary, I would personally do a light soil drench, and take care of the negative pests, and give the earthworms about a week to come back to that area again.
