Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Forficula auricularia, the common earwig or European earwig, is an omnivorous insect in the family Forficulidae. The European earwig is a common household pest in North America. Though they frighten many, they are harmless but tend to take up habitation within the home. The name "earwig" comes from the rumor that these insects crawl into human ears and enter the brain, but this is false.However, there have been cases of earwigs wandering into ears by mistake.show more
