Scientific Name: European earwig/common earwig
Description: Adult earwigs are 1/4” to 1” long and dark brown to black with a red head and pale yellow-brown legs. The body is long and flattened. Earwigs usually have two pairs of wings, the hind wings are fully developed and folded beneath the short, leathery front wings. The thread-like antennae are half as long as the body. The most notable characteristic is the forceps, the pincher-like appendages at the end of the abdomen.
