With over 2,000 different species, it can be hard to tell one species from another. Out of the many different insect orders, earwigs are considered to be part of the smaller orders. Most people recognize earwigs by their forceps pincers or cerci, which are connected to the earwig’s abdomen. However, not all earwigs have the iconic pincers, and although they have wings, earwigs rarely fly.
