Earwigs are from Europe or Asia, but this species is now found throughout the
world. Earwigs were first found in America around 1907 near Seattle, Washington.
Earwigs take three to five months to mature from egg to adult and generally live only about one year. Adults are capable of some flight. Earwigs feed primarily on plant material, but also are predators on many other insects. Earwigs have strong "pincers" at their hind ends and utilized for defense, food capture, and other uses. Earwigs can be found everywhere around the house and yard. They hide under lumber or firewood piles, yard debris, or other piled materials on soil. Moisture control helps to reduce the favored habitat of earwigs. Bugs-B-Dead can apply environmentally safe Products that will intercept wandering earwigs along pathways and around foundations to control infestation.
