ABOUT THE PESTS / OTHER PESTS / EARWIGS
The name "earwig" originates from the superstition that earwigs crawl into the ears of sleeping persons and bore into the brain. Although earwigs appear somewhat dangerous due to their pincers, they are basically harmless to people. These pincers are used in capturing prey and mating. Earwigs vary in size from 1/2" to 1 inch, and are brown to black in color.

Earwigs have been known to cause damage to gardens and other cultivated plant life. Although they seldom establish themselves indoors, they are a nuisance when they migrate into houses.



Usually found outside around the house, earwigs feed on plant material and other insects. These insects are most active at night, and tend to hide during the day in cracks and crevices. Due to their habit of hiding in dark places, earwigs are often transported in bundles of newspapers, packages, crates, lumber and other items, allowing them to inadvertently be brought indoors.
