Name: Earwigs
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Subphylum: Hexapoda
Class: Insecta
Order: Dermaptera

Habitat:
Earwigs prefer a dark, moist habitat beneath stones, boards, sidewalks and debris. During the day they like to hide in tubular legs of garden furniture, wooden fences, hollow aluminum doors, and other cracks and crevices. In the home they crawl under rugs, cushions, baseboards, and dark, damp crevices, especially in basements.

Food:
Decaying organic matter forms the largest part of the earwigs’ diet, they also feed on the tender shoots, leaves and blossoms of flowering plants and vegetables. Earwigs, also being carnivorous, are predators of insect larvae, slug eggs, aphids, and other garden pests. They sometimes even eat each other.

Method of Travel:
Crawling, Climbing

Prevention:
1. Eliminate debris around your property, such as grass cuttings, mulch patches and wood heaps.
2. Cultivate the soil to disturb the over-wintering earwigs and expose newly laid eggs to the dry surface where they are less likely to survive.

Steps to control:
1. Set up simple traps in areas where they commonly go for shelter.
2. Remove any damaged produce in your garden right away: earwigs like feeding on fruits or vegetables that have holes or bruises.
3. Good, long lasting, low-toxic methods of insect control can be done with Knock Down Crawling Insect Killer or other Knock Down products listed below.
