Identifying Earwig Problems

There are several species of earwig. Common earwigs (Forficula auricularia) are wingless insects, and adults may vary in size from 3/8 of an inch to 5/8 of an inch. They have nymphal stages similar to the adult stages. They may vary in color, but have the same distinguishing characteristic pincher-like appendages, which are more distinctive in the adult stage.

Locating Earwig Infestations

Earwig problems are mostly found outdoors, but can invade structures, especially if the conditions outside are optimum for their development. Earwig infestations are found in mulch, in gardens and along foundations, feeding on decaying vegetation. Moisture is the most important ingredient in their development.

Questions To Ask About Earwig Problems

  • Where have you seen them?
  • How many have you seen?
  • What is your watering regimen?
  • Are there any other moisture problems?

Earwig Infestation Inspection Tips

  • Look under and around stored items and/or debris.
