Earwigs are known for their cerci, or forceps-like pincers that give them an intimidating look
Earwig females display an uncommon degree of care for their young, uncharacteristic of the insect world
While most earwigs are scavengers, many are also omnivorous or even predatory
Most species of earwigs have one generation per year
Earwigs will move into certain clefts and crevices in homes (although not those of the ear canal), and homeowners may need to discover how to get rid of earwigs. Earwig populations should not be ignored, as a female earwig will lay between 20 and 80 eggs at one time. Contact a pest control company today to learn how to get rid of earwigs.
