Earwigs

Earwigs are small, dark insects that measure about 1/4 – 1″ long. They have distinctive pincers called cerci on their abdomen. They generally live outdoors, but can occasionally invade the home. Despite the fearsome appearance of the pincers on their body, they are not dangerous and are not known to spread disease.

How to Identify an Earwig Infestation

Seeing the bugs themselves is the only indicator that you have an infestation. They are attracted to dark, moist places, meaning areas of clutter and high humidity should be checked.

Dealing with an Earwig Infestation

Earwigs usually only invade homes if their natural shelters are very near to the home. Any materials (such as moist wood or mulch) should be moved to a position far from the home. Any earwigs found inside the home can be removed with a vacuum. If the problem persists, contact a professional.
