Earwigs are common household pests in Wisconsin. These odd-looking, elongated insects have pincers on their abdomen. They are nocturnal insects that primarily feed on dead plants and insects. Despite the old wives’ tale, earwigs do not actually crawl into people’s ears and lay eggs. However, some people consider the pincers on their abdomen to be frightening.

Earwigs usually enter homes from fruits, vegetables, or flowers brought in from outside gardens. They will also seek cracks and crevices around door frames to access your home for the winter.

Despite their pincers, earwigs are harmless insects. They can pinch you, but their pinchers aren’t strong enough to pierce the skin. Earwigs are a common household nuisance that can leave stains if squished.

Did You Know?

An old wives tale states that earwigs got their name because they will enter human ears and burrow into your brain, but that is totally false. Earwigs are more likely to have gained their name from their ear-shaped wings.
