  1. i dreamt of stepping and crushing a big size earwig and a cockroach save it by dragging it into a drain hole. what a weird dream.

  2. In my dream I wanted to cut off the pinchers. As I proceeded to cut them off with scissors, the earwig grabbed my finger with all its legs and was stinging me. I could really feel the pain. I successfully cut off the pinchers despite his efforts to stop me.

  3. I had a dream of an earwig inside a scab on the back of my head and I pulled it off and killed the earwig.

  4. I dreamt I was hang with friends and I left with one and she asked me to go get something out of the kitchen when I went to the kitchen I saw a bunch I walked through them getting what I was asked. When I was leaving the kitchen I turned my head and saw a giant earwig(it was the size of my forearm and hand) crawl out from underneath the sink. I stepped on its head. It tried to pull back to get its head out. So I slid my foot with it. It got its head to where it could angle and bite my foot. It hurt a bit i still wanted to kill it. So I looked frantically around me for something to stab it with(I didn’t want to dirty any of my friend’s kitchen knives). I found a screw driver and stabbed straight into the mouth of the giant earwig I kept going till I felt the bite loosen and heard a crunch then I slid my foot and it was dead. There was more at the beginning of the dream but the earwig seemed important as did the screwdriver. I saw the acsact same screw driver all dream long.

  5. I had a dream last night that I was on a cruise with family and I discovered about 10 to 15 earwigs underneath the pillow in the room. No idea what this means.
