5752 The attached photo is a bug that crawled out of a plum pit that my daughter was eating. They are from BC and I had just bought them today. Please tell me what this bug is. Thank you, Angela
This is an earwig (order Dermaptera). Earwigs are very common nuisance pests that usually do little if any actual harm; occasionally, they may cause damage to very tender vegetation. See http://tinyurl.com/h5m54vn for more detailed information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
