Earwig information

Tucson_Earwig

Earwigs got their name from the myth that they crawl into sleeping people’s ears and tunnel into their brains. The long cerci, or clippers, on their backsides easily identify an earwig.

Habits

Earwigs hide during the day and feeds on leaves, flowers, fruits, mold and insects at night.

Earwig Control & Prevention

Looking to get rid of earwigs or prevent an infestation in the home? Remove harborage sites such as leaf piles, mulch piles or other vegetation. Seal cracks and crevices well to prevent structural entry for optimal earwig control.
