....or Clipshears, which is it?
Anyhoo. I haven`t seen one for years.
Are they extinct?

And while I am at it, why is there not a gardening forum?

Dermaptera or, as the layman would call them, `Earwigs` were placed on the UNs list of endangered species in 2008. It`s believed there is less than 100 of them still existence and certainly none will be found in these shores.

If they are close to extinction then I better get my house declared as a protected area...we have had 3 in the past few weeks.

I belive it is the St Helena Giant earwig (reaching up to 8cm) that was declared extinct in 2014. Of the 1000 species world wide we only have 4 in the UK.

And each and every one of them strikes me as being a super aggressive bampot.

Strangely enough I just picked up my phone meaning to search on Google about earwigs, as out in the garden this thing that looked a bit like an earwig landed on my arm. It was dark but not quite black, almost like a metallic really dark brown and had little bits of yellow on it

Earwigs aplenty here in Oz. In fact, nasty beasties aplenty wherever I happen to look around these parts...
