:lol: Very funny, the Feedback & Bugs section isn't for questions about "beetle" bugs. :smirk:
 
i've been taking notes, i'm waiting for some parts then going to finish this up, with pics and put it all in one thread :thumb:
 
pincher bug soup!!

1.Take a plastic disposable container (like one of those reusable soup/sandwich containers made by hefty or ziploc). Make sure it's one you don't want anymore because you will end up throwing it away in the end.

2.Fill it with something the pincher bugs will love such as olive or vegetable oil about 2 inches deep.

3.Place the container near where you see earwigs frequently.

4.Wait overnight.

5.In the morning, the containers should be filled with drowned bugs. You can either place the container in a plastic bag and throw it away, or add more oil if needed to catch more bugs.



 
Pincher bugs? They don't bite! It's the damn ticks that give me the creeps! They get on you and they don't want to leave. Nothing worse than taking off your jersey at the end of the day and finding a new "mole" on your back. Sons of Beatches bury themselves in your skin and can stay there for DAYS if you don't get em quick! :shocked:

also you do not want to just pull them out... they will detach the head and that head will burrow into you. Also a big carrier of lime disease.

best way to remove ticks is to get a match.. light the match blow it out and imedeitly put the match head on the ass end of the tick... this will cause it to back itself out without detatching its head. :prof:

does this really work? cause i really have a bit of a pincher bug problem down here in my basement... which is my bedroom, with bathroom, own living room etc... i rent off my sister, she's going through a divorce and being on house arrest it actually kind of worked out so now she has help with stuff around here and bills... anyway... these little pricks come in down here when it gets humid i reckon looking for the moisture. i keep a dehumidifier running 24/7(so much moisture in the air i have to empty it twice a day at least) and that seems to work but if it fills up and stops running while i'm at work i come home and have to kill about 4 or 5 of the little freaks... i know that's not a ton but still enough to bug me<pun intended> lol, get it :lol: bug me :lol: BUG :lol: hahaha... haha... ha... :devil: :thinking: :rolleyes: :D
 
It must work to some extent. If you drive around the "lower income areas" there are homes with half full plastic jugs, all around their lawn. Then again, that might be something for all the chickens running around:rolleyes:

I'm not shure if it really works I've never tried it. but i looked it up online and that was one of the things that they said to do.Try it out and tell me how it works Lug does that stuff for a living tho he might have a better idea about what to do.:prof:
 
(Earwigs are fairly abundant and found in many areas of the world. There is no evidence that they transmit diseases to humans or other animals. Their pincers are commonly believed to be dangerous, but cause little harm to humans.[44] It is a common urban legend that earwigs crawl into the human ear and lay eggs in the brain.[45][46] Finding earwigs in the human ear is rare, as most species do not fly and prefer dark and damp areas (e.g., basements) rather than typical bedrooms.[3]

There is a debate whether earwigs are either harmful or beneficial to crops, as they eat both the insects eating the foliage (e.g., aphids) and the foliage itself, though it would take a large population to do considerable damage. The common earwig eats a wide variety of plants, and also a wide variety of foliage including the leaves and petals. They have been known to cause economic losses in fruit and vegetable crops. Some examples are the flowers, hops, and corn crops in Germany, and in the south of France it has been observed feeding on peaches and apricots. The earwigs would attack mature plants and make cup-shaped bite marks 3–11 mm (0.12–0.43 in) in diameter.[47])

I've herd that they crawl in the ear but now i know the truth.learn something new everyday
