The Science

What are the risks of earwigs?

Learn all about earwigs

Being Pinched by Their Pinchers

Earwigs can use their forceps to grasp onto a finger if agitated and might cause some discomfort and or break the skin.

Fast Reproduction Rate

Many female earwigs lay two to six rounds of eggs, at about 20 to 60 at a time.

Inclement Weather = More Earwigs

When the weather gets nasty, earwigs will want to cozy up in the dry and warm comforts of your home.
