Earwigs are a common pest in Southeastern Michigan, characterized by their small size and pincers on their abdomens.

What do earwigs look like?

An earwig is a brownish, slender insect ranging in size from 5 to 25 mm. They have two pairs of wings and are characterized by the pincers on the back of their abdomen, which are used for defense against other insects as well as members of their own species. An earwig infestation is marked by clusters of earwigs, who are come together as a result of a pheromone they produce. There are more than 20 species of earwigs in the United States.

What is typical behavior of earwigs?

Earwigs are nocturnal insects who eat plants and other insects. Like most insects, they are attracted to water. Outdoors, they typically live in the mulch in flower beds, as well as under rocks and logs. During the day, earwigs hide in cracks in damp areas. They typically find their way into your home in search of food or because of a change in the weather. In the home, earwigs are most attracted to kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, but they can find their way into bedrooms and family rooms as well.

How can I get rid of earwigs?

The most important step in earwig eradication is eliminating all of their hiding spaces. Create a “dry zone” around the foundation of your home that is about 6 to 12 inches wide by removing all dead leaves, mulch, and other organic material. Trim all shrubs and trees that cause damp, shady areas near your home. Also, move all logs, decorative stones, firewood piles, and other landscaping items away from the foundation of your home. Double check all of your gutters and downspouts to make sure they drain away from the foundation of your home, further eliminating moisture. Also, make sure to set all sprinklers and other irrigation systems to only water in the morning so that they can have all day to dry. Pesticides are already fairly ineffective in eliminating an earwig problem; without performing these measures, pesticides will not work. Some additional measures you can take include the adjustment of outdoor lights to shine from the yard to the house, attracting the bugs that earwigs feed on away from the house. Changing these light bulbs from white bulbs to yellow can also help, as bugs are more attracted to white light than they are to the yellow. A dehumidifier can help eliminate moisture in many cases. Also, be sure to check the screens in your crawl space vents.

All of these precautions can assist you in preventing an earwig infestation, but in most cases, it’s not enough. A blend of pesticides, specific knowledge, and special equipment is necessary to fully and properly eradicate earwigs.
