Earwigs

(Order Dermaptera)

Appearance

Earwigs are dark brown in color. They have forceps-like cerci extending from the rear of their abdomen (look like pinchers). On male earwigs, the forceps can be quite large.

Size

Approximately 1-inch long.

Behavior

Earwigs will catch and eat other insects. They also feed on plants, ripe fruit, and garbage. Plants that are fed on include clover, dahlias, zinnias, butterfly bush, hollyhock, lettuce, strawberry, celery, potatoes, roses, seedling beans and beets, and tender grass shoots and roots.

Habitat

Earwigs are nocturnal, hiding during the day and roaming at night to find food and water. Around homes they hide in garden plants, in shrubbery, along fences, in woodpiles, at the base of trees, and behind loose boards on buildings. While they are mainly an outdoor pest, their habit of hiding among petals or leaves of plants allows them to be brought frequently into the home.

Interesting Fact

The European earwig is the most common type in the United States. It is seriously disliked because of its repulsive appearance and its habit of feeding at times in kitchen refuse or hiding in a wet mop.
