Who knew??
First time I ever saw an earwig was about 1993 or so. Until then they had not reached our locality. A couple years later they were rampant, and I mean *everywhere.* Turn over any rock and you'd find hundreds. They must have picked up some natural predators since then because their population is now much smaller, but they are still really common.

They are in incredible and beautiful and almost like they incorporate cellophane or fine plastic film instead of living, structured tissue.

Me NEITHER! I'll capture them and set them free, like I do moths. But houseflies still need to die!

That's pretty darn interesting. I'd really like to see them put the wings back into their tidy storage space!

Well, if I could fly, I certainly would.

Why do they so rarely use their wings?
