  1. According to a famous American author who wrote the Cask of Amantillado, you need to keep these things out of your ears. Is that correct?

    • I guess it would be a good thing to do. It would drive you made if an earwig crawled deep into your ear. I’m not going to try it. 🙂

      • That’s why they gross me out so much! My mother always said that to me and my brothers liked to tell campfire stories (read: horror stories) about earwigs eating brains. I was very impressionable back then.

  2. As a kid, I used to think that the pincer-like tail was used to pierce the eardrums! It’s irrational, but I still do all grown up :-p

    • Yep, that is what the pincers are for, be sure to keep them out of your ears. It’s a good idea not to let them up you nose, too.
