Pin through the right side of the elytra like a beetle, and spread the legs. Some people try to spread the wings so that they can see the venation better for identification. Keep the legs close to the side of the body and arrange the antennae along the side of the body. Smaller ones, you have to point. Jeff Prill

Just while on the subject of earwigs , heard the funniest thing on the radio here in Australia the other day , Theres an old wives tale that earwigs get in your ears while sleeping, so you should sleep with your fingers in your ears to keep them out , well one radio listener called in and said to get them out hang a piece of meat on a string just outside the ear , we cracked up when we heard that one . Yes just pin them like a beetle otherwise , unless really small then card.
