Earwigs typically winter-over outdoors as adults in protected areas. The females lay eggs and tend to their newly hatched nymphs underground. Earwigs are nocturnal or active at night and hide during the day in moist, dark places. Neither the eggs nor nymphs can withstand long periods of dryness, making earwig control easier. The pests only occasionally invade homes. Earwigs feed on live or dead plants or insects and mainly live outdoors.
The key to proper earwig control is the removal of plant debris and objects such as firewood or boards, which tend to hold moisture and harboring sites.
