A long, narrow, brown insect 10 to 14mm long with characteristic “pincers” at one end, the earwig is often carried indoors in cut flowers or house plants and often invades from the garden through open windows, sometimes in large numbers.
Harmless in the house, but it can be discouraged by keeping creepers or vegetation cut back from walls near windows and dusting humid corners where they congregate with an insect powder.
A garden insecticide may be used outdoors and on vegetation.
