Despite the name earwigs do not enter the human ear. The name possiblr derives from an old wives tale that they would burrow into the brain to lay their eggs via the ear. They actually are rarely found in the home as they will normally hide during the day in dark damp places and then feed at night on plants and insects.
They are in fact a great asset at killing pest insects like aphids but they are known to eat plants. Our sprays and powders are excellent at controlling earwigs.
