Earwigs (Order Dermaptera)
Earwigs are dark brown in colour, about 10 to 14mm long, with forceps-like clippers extending from the backside. They have a slender, flattened body, and bead-like antennae.
- Earwigs hide during the day and feed on leaves, flowers, fruits, mould and insects at night.
- They live together outdoors in large numbers.
- They can be found under piles of lawn debris, mulch or in tree holes.
- They can gain entry to a structure through exterior cracks.
Contrary to folklore, earwigs do not crawl into people’s ears at night. They do not spread diseases, but their menacing appearance can be alarming to a homeowner.
Treatment may involve removing debris, mulch and other objects from your yard as well as a thorough investigation and treatment of cracks in your home’s exterior.
You can use an appropriate insecticide powder at the base of walls near doors and windows. Applying dust to humid corners where earwigs gather will help reduce the problem. A garden insecticide can be applied outdoors and on vegetation.
