This is the most common earwig in Florida, and probably the only species that could be considered to be a pest, though it rarely builds to very high numbers. It is mostly known as a nuisance, and the small amount of plant feeding injury it causes likely is offset by its beneficial predatory habits. This document is EENY-088, one of a series of Featured Creatures from the Entomology and Nematology Department, Florida Cooperative Extension
