With so many kinds of bugs, there are going to be some ugly critters wanting to move in with you.

European Earwig


Before your ears begin to itch, the idea that earwigs while climb into your ear to lay eggs is a myth. You can pull out your earbuds and breathe a sigh of relief. Still though, when you see earwigs you can’t help notice those large pincers. If you grab an earwig, they can deliver a pinch, but it won’t hurt you very much. The problem with earwigs is how they can ruin your flowers and vegetable garden. If you find them in your home, they can transmit diseases from bathroom floors to your countertops.

House Centipede


What has 30 legs and runs all over? With all those long legs, the house centipede resembles an insect pin cushion and has caused many people to run for the nearest implement of insect death. House centipedes know how to run; they can move their bodies up walls and across your kitchen tile faster than you can find a fly swatter. The most common places to find them are in your kitchen, basement and bathroom. If disturbed, they can deliver a bite that will be as painful as a bee sting.

The Cellar Spider


If you hate spiders, an infestation of cellar spiders will make you run in terror. They have long spindly legs and if you get close to their web, they may begin to bounce around in agitation. They love dark, undisturbed areas and your basement it one their favorite spots. While not known to bite people, their presence can ruin any game night.
