Earwigs are one of the most unique looking bugs we come across in Arizona. The history or myth, shall we say, of earwigs, is they lay eggs in your ears. That myth couldn’t be further from the truth. With pinchers on the back of them, antenna on the front and wings, they are very fun to watch. Their size is about 1/2″ to about 5/8″. While they do not pose a harm to you, finding them in your house or yard could be a sign of bigger problem. Earwigs are omnivores, which means they eat both plant and animal material. Earwigs are nocturnal and can be found both inside and outside of your house.
