Earwigs are brown beetle like insects with a pair of pincers at the tip of its abdomen. The name, “Earwig” comes from the mistaken belief that the insect creeps into the ears of sleeping persons. The earwig is seldom more than one inch (2.5 cm) long. A pair of many-jointed antennae projects from the insect’s large head. Most earwigs have four wings—a short, thick, upper pair; and a larger, thin, transparent rear pair that folds like a fan beneath the upper pair. However, these insects rarely fly, and some do not have wings at all. Earwigs feed mainly on crop and garden plants, but their chewing mouthparts are also adapted for eating insects, slugs, and decayed matter.
Earwigs are found in all warm climates. Earwigs are nocturnal; they often hide in small, moist crevices during the day, and are active at night, feeding on a wide variety of insects and plants.
