Earwigs DelmanExpert Pest Control Service

Earwigs:

There are over 1,000 species of earwigs around the world. Earwigs are long, flat, narrow and dark brown, black, tan, reddish or yellow in color. They can measure anywhere from half an inch to three inches long. It only takes an earwig about 20 to 70 days to become an adult, growing up quickly. A few earwig species are both wingless and blind. Although most earwigs have wings and are capable of flight, they are rarely seen flying. Earwigs live for about 1 year after hatching. Entomologists believe the name stems from the fact that an earwig’s hind wings are unique among insects. Also, they resemble a human ear when folded. Earwigs are found all over the world, but there is no evidence they transmit diseases to humans or animals. Although their pincers are often believed to be dangerous, even the curved pincers of the male cause no harm to humans. Earwig are not fussy eaters. Earwigs are omnivores and tend to eat at night. Earwigs eat both plant matter, such as leaves, fruit, flowers, and mold, as well as insects.
