Why are earwigs such a nuisance?
Earwigs feed on dead insects, living plants, and dead plants. This makes your outdoor plants an ideal feeding place for earwigs. They also feed on the roots of flowers, fruits, vegetables and shrubs as well as seedlings. They can devastate your outdoor landscaping and garden.
Earwigs have no problem making their way into your home. Once inside your home, you may not notice them at first. They come out primarily at night to feed, much the same as they do outdoors. Their ability to hide is a major issue with earwig control. However, once they make their way into your home, you likely start to recognize the tell-tale signs of an earwig infestation. Perhaps you even see their slender reddish-brown body scurrying across the floor.
Earwigs do not cause major health issues; however, they release a bad-smelling liquid, especially if you unknowingly disturb them. Also, earwigs usually use their pincers in defense so humans can potentially suffer a pinch from earwigs.
Another major issue with earwigs is the fact that they multiply quickly. The Colorado State University Denver County Extension Master Gardener points out that “An infestation can number in the thousands.”
