Earwigs

Characteristics

Earwigs have a characteristic set of forceps pinchers on their abdomen, as well as a rarely used set of wings.  Males have curved pincers, while females have straight ones. They use their pinchers to capture prey and to defend themselves. Typically earwigs are medium to dark brown in color in the Northern California area.

Earwigs Behavior

Earwigs can live up to a year after hatching, going through as many as six molts. They are more of a nuisance pest than a real threat to humans. When bothered, they may bite, but their pinchers cause little to no damage to humans. They are most active at night.
