EARWIG

PEST CONTROL

Earwigs are found on all continents except Antarctica. They are nocturnal and hide in dark moist areas during the day. Since they are active at night is how their name was originated from the old wives’ tale that they burrowed into sleeping people’s ears and can tunnel into their brains.

They have pincers on their abdomen that are used to capture prey. Males have more curved pincers than females.
