Earwigs become pests when they come indoors and when outdoor populations get out of control. In gardens and greenhouses, they chew irregularly shaped holes in plant leaves and flower petals, tunnel into flower buds, but also consume seedlings. They hide in cool, moist places during the day and feed at night.

Earwig damage mimics from caterpillars and slugs; be sure you’ve identified the real culprits by looking for feeding earwigs on your plants after dark.
