Earwigs are usually found hiding under a stone or board that is lying on slightly damp soil, and they are easily recognized by their dangerous-looking pinchers. Although these structures can give a mild nip, they are weak and otherwise harmless; they are used for catching and manipulating prey and sometimes for fending off enemies.
Earwig Treatment & Earwig Control
Earwigs are active at night and hide during the day in moist and shady places, such as under stones, logs or mulch. Neither the eggs nor nymphs can tolerate long period of dryness. Like other occasional invaders, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) protocol will effectively eliminate earwigs.
