Earwigs

Exterminate Earwigs Omaha, NE

Omaha Pest Control has many years of experience controlling these pests. Earwigs are a very common pest in and around Omaha, Nebraska.

Earwigs, also known as “pincer bugs” are dark brown to reddish brown in color and can either be winged or wingless. They are typically about 5/8 of an inch in length, but have been known to grow larger. They are nocturnal insects that feed on decaying plant material as well as other insects including fleas and mites. Earwigs are active at night. During the day they hide in cracks in damp areas. They live under rocks and logs and in the mulch of flower beds. Earwigs eat plants and insects.

Earwigs move into homes to find food or because of change in weather. Homeowners often find them in areas where there is water – kitchens, bathrooms, and laundries. Earwigs can also find their way into other rooms such as bedrooms and family rooms.

Are Earwigs Dangerous?

The earwig may appear to be a dangerous bug due to the intimidating pincers or forceps. They are not dangerous and do not bite. Earwigs use these pincers for defense and for sparing with rival earwigs.
