How To Identify An Earwig

The earwig is one of the easiest pests to identify here in Boise. It has a dark brown body, dirty-yellow legs, and two long, sometimes curled antennae. A fully grown earwig is about one inch long. One notable feature is the large pincer at its rear. They use their pincer to fend off predators. If you are trying to identify an earwig problem around your home and property, all you can really do is keep an eye out for these bugs. The only real sign of earwigs is the damage they cause to local vegetation. Besides this, the best way to identify these pests is with a professional pest inspection performed by the experts at Owyhee Environmental. We would be happy to visit your home and determine what pest problems you are up against.

Why You Don't Want Earwigs Hanging Around Your House

Earwigs are not the most harmful insects in Boise. They are, however, incredibly annoying, scary looking, and sometimes destructive to plants. If you pick up an earwig or trap them against a part of your body, they will use their pincers to scare you away. These pincers can pierce human skin and cause minor bleeding. The good news is that earwigs are not venomous and cannot spread any disease. The worst these pests will do is nibble on plants in and around your home.
