Welcome to our series on insects that start with E! Today we are going to be talking about the
European earwig. This little critter is found all over Europe, as well as in North America and Asia. They usually measure between 12-19 mm long, and have a reddish-brown coloration. The European earwig is a nocturnal insect, meaning it prefers to come out at night. During the day they like to hide in dark, moist places such as under rocks or logs.
They are omnivorous creatures, eating both plants and animals. Some of their favorite foods include fruits, vegetables, flowers, aphids (a type of small insect), termites, and other small invertebrates. Earwigs have been known to cause some damage to crops by eating them or damaging them while foraging for food; however, this generally isn’t a major issue since they make up such a small percentage of the overall population.”
