Earwigs

Earwigs are small, elongated insects that belong to the order Dermaptera. They are characterized by their distinctive “pincers,” or cerci, which protrude from their abdomens. These pincers are used for defense, but are not harmful to humans.

Earwigs are typically about 5/8 inch in length and can range in color from light brown to black. They have a flattened body shape and are often found in damp, dark environments, such as under rocks, in mulch, or in tree bark.

While earwigs are often considered pests, they are actually beneficial insects in the garden, as they feed on other insects, such as aphids and mites. They may also feed on decomposing plant material.

Earwigs may enter homes in search of food, moisture, or shelter. While they are not harmful to humans, they can be a nuisance if they are found in large numbers.
