Earwigs are Unpleasant
Earwigs, odd-looking insects with pincers or forceps protruding from their abdomens – may be intimidating but are not poisonous and don’t spread disease. With more than 20 species of earwigs in the United States, it’s important to have a professional come out and determine which species you have on your property.
Some species produce a foul-smelling liquid that they use for self-defense. Earwigs are not regarded kindly by the general population, based on a superstition that they burrow into the ears of people while they sleep. However, this is a myth with no scientific basis. Earwigs are also frightening due to their pincers.
Earwigs Extermination & Prevention
These long, narrow nocturnal feeders thrive in dark, damp environments. They are fast moving and will scatter when disturbed or when a light shines on them. These pests, while not technically a danger to humans, will cause a lot of damage to your garden, despite the fact that they prey on aphids. They’ll destroy plants, seedlings, flower petals, soft fruits, and corn silks. So, if you are an avid gardener, you will want to stop the spread of earwigs quickly.
