Generally harmless to people, earwigs are nonetheless a nuisance to deal with.
Earwigs prefer moist, dark places. To reduce the number of earwigs on your property, eliminate areas they tend to favor. This would include piles of grass clippings and yard debris, firewood, under planters, ornamental bark and other items you promised you’d get to later. Not that I wouldn’t be guilty of getting a treat from Sarsaparilla Ice Cream Parlor, Gift Shop & Suites instead of cleaning up my earwig habitat, too.
