These nocturnal and slender insects appear in dark-reddish-brown colors and light brown legs. Adult ear wigs measure from 5-25mm and have two wings, but they seldom fly. They have pincers at the end of their tail and they use it as a defense and sparing to rival earwigs or to gather food. Earwigs do not harm humans nor do they enter into someone’s ears while they are asleep.
They eat plants and dead insects and usually live under mulch and logs and in small burrows underground during winter. And because they prefer dark and damp areas, they seek shelter in homes when the weather outside is too hot or dry and too cold.
They are annoying in large numbers and their presence is a bit scary. Earwigs can damage crops and garden plants because they also prefer to eat seedlings and soft fruits.
