An Earwig

Like the Bed Bug, Earwigs are mostly nocturnal and prefer to hide in the cracks and crevices of our homes. They are similar in color but have slender bodies and a pincer on their abdomen.

Homeowners often find them in areas where there is water like kitchens, bathrooms, and laundries. Earwigs can also find their way into bedrooms and family rooms. The adults earwig ranges in size from 5-25 mm.

General pest control methods are used to exterminate this pest.
