Appearance

Earwigs are dark brown in colour, about 10 to 14mm long, with forceps-like clippers extending from the backside. They have a slender, flattened body, and bead-like antennae.

Habits

Contrary to folklore, earwigs do not crawl into people’s ears at night. They do not spread diseases, but their menacing appearance can be alarming to a homeowner.

Threats

Although a nuisance Booklice do not carry any diseases and are not a health risk. Nor are they a sign of poor hygiene or a dirty house. Large infestations, however, may cause significant damage to delicate materials such as books and furs.

Prevention

Treatment may involve removing debris, mulch and other objects from your yard as well as a thorough investigation and treatment of cracks in your home’s exterior.

You can use an appropriate insecticide powder at the base of walls near doors and windows. Applying dust to humid corners where earwigs gather will help reduce the problem. A garden insecticide can be applied outdoors and on vegetation.
