These Earwigs generally appear as a brown or a black with some possible yellow on the body. The body itself can range between 10mm and 26mm in length and, though some species of Earwigs have wings, they seldom fly.
Ring-Legged Earwigs are very common in the outdoors, usually found around gardens and fields. Stray Earwigs might make their way into your home, but that would be about the extent of indoor habitation. Most likely, ones found indoors are "lost". Earwigs enjoy the nighttime hours when they are more at liberty to roam safely in order to hunt other insects.
Eggs are laid in the fall in the dirt or loose ground litter and eventually hatch in the spring time. Nymphs will tend to grow faster in the hot summer months in the South, producing more generations per year than in the cooler regions of the northern of the United States and Canada.
