How do earwigs live and reproduce?

Earwigs are small, brown insects that live in warm, moist places. They have two pairs of legs and a pair of wings. Earwigs eat bugs and other small animals. They reproduce by laying eggs in the ground or on plants.

How do earwigs get into homes?

Earwigs are small, dark creatures that can live in dry places such as walls and ceilings. They like to build their homes in tight spaces where they can avoid being seen or eaten by predators. Earwigs are able to move quickly and easily through small spaces, so it is easy for them to enter homes.

Earwigs typically enter homes through open cracks or openings in the exterior wall or roof. They may also travel into homes on fruit, vegetables, flowers, leaves, or other organic material that has been dropped onto the ground outside of the home. Earwigs can also be brought into homes on clothing, tools, or other objects that have been left outside.

Once inside a home, earwigs often hide in dark and inaccessible places such as behind wiring or pipes. They may also build nests near the edges of ceilings and walls. If you see evidence of earwigs in your home, it is important to remove them using a safe method such as vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool attachment.

If you are concerned that you or a family member may have an earwig infestation, it is best to contact a professional pest control company.

How to get rid of earwigs?

There are a few different ways to get rid of earwigs. You can use pesticides, baits or traps. Pesticides can be applied directly to the infested areas or you can place them in containers and set them out for the earwigs to take home with them. Baits and traps work by attracting the earwigs with something they want, like food, and then trapping them.

If you want to try a different approach, you can pour boiling water over the infested area and wait 30 minutes. This will kill any eggs or young earwigs that are present.


Earwigs can be a real pain to get rid of, but there are some tricks you can use to make the process go more smoothly. By following these tips, you should be able to get rid of your earwigs without any trouble at all.
