Earwigs are commonly feared because of urban legends that imply that they like to crawl into human ears. However, in reality, an earwig's preferred habitat is in the soil. They often find their way into homes due to human activity or to avoid cold temperatures outside by coming in through cracks in the foundation or gaps in doorways or windows. Earwigs are mainly considered a nuisance pest whose largest threat is their unpleasant appearance.
Earwig-Related Damage and Health Risks
- Earwigs will use defensive pincers when threatened, but are not capable of doing significant damage to human skin.
- They do not do damage to buildings or furniture, but their presence can be disturbing to guests or customers in your home or business.
