I found a few earwigs around the plants, I typically have my 2 VFT plants and my pitcher seeds in pots on the windowsil. I was wondering if these can do any damage to the plants, I think I am correct in thinking they can attack plants.

 

It was only 2 actually and I have searched the area but cannot find a gathering of any kind.

 

Thanks folks

Were they a pair? They're easy to sex.

 

The only damage I've had on plants due to earwigs was on flower petals. They like soft material to chew, probably more dangerous to any decaying plant material lying around

They are always in my nepenthes, usually in the leaves before they unroll. Haven't seen any damage to my plants. They usually end up being food.
