Earwigs are small insects belonging to the order Dermaptera. They are characterized by the pincer-like appendages, called cerci, located at the end of their abdomens. These pincers are used for defense, prey capture, and mating rituals.
Appearance: Earwigs typically measure around 0.5 to 1 inch (1.3 to 2.5 centimeters) in length. They have elongated bodies with two pairs of wings, although some species are wingless. The hind wings are usually folded underneath the short forewings, giving them a flattened appearance.
Habitat: Earwigs are found worldwide, with different species inhabiting various regions. They prefer moist environments and are commonly found in gardens, mulch, leaf litter, and under rocks or logs. Earwigs are nocturnal, seeking shelter during the day and becoming active at night.
Behavior: Despite their name, earwigs do not typically enter human ears. They are primarily scavengers, feeding on dead insects, decaying plant material, and organic matter. Some species can also be omnivorous, consuming living plants, flowers, and ripe fruit. Earwigs are not considered harmful to humans or pets, but their pincers can give a mild pinch if handled.

Show bugs, also known as woodlice or pill bugs, are small crustaceans that are not actually bugs, but rather land-dwelling crustaceans related to shrimp and lobsters. Sow bugs are commonly found in moist environments such as gardens, under rocks, logs, and leaf litter.
Sow bugs have a segmented, oval-shaped body and are usually gray or brown in color. They have a hard exoskeleton and seven pairs of legs. Unlike insects, sow bugs do not have wings.
Habitat: Sow bugs prefer damp and dark environments, as they are prone to desiccation (drying out). They can be found in gardens, under decaying organic matter, and in moist basements or crawl spaces.
While sow bugs are primarily outdoor creatures, they can occasionally find their way into homes through gaps or cracks. However, they do not cause structural damage, nor do they transmit diseases. Their presence indoors is often an indication of excess moisture.
If you encounter sow bugs indoors and wish to remove them, it’s best to address any moisture issues in your home and contact Speedy Pest Control to help exterminate them.
