What bug is this ?


Not an earwig.

A closer picture would be good.

Looks like a type of beetle.

Both a closer picture and identifying what state or region of the country you live in would assist in narrowing down possible insects.

Recommend also googling insects in your state, likely plenty of websites with photos to assist you in identification.

I also do not believe it's an earwig, they have very identifiable pincers on the rear and grow to be much larger then what you have described seeing (1/2"+).

Suggest you use an online chart to ID the thing, like insectidentification.org, just one example, they have charts and keys to follow, they're pretty good.

Helped me identify my "termites" as harmless booklice, thank god.

Better to check more than one website. Don't need to be an entomologist to figure it out, thanks internet!

i have killed both with mild soapy water.
I think they are harmless until they bite you
