Earwigs--Why are they so prevalent?

Asked July 27, 2020, 11:21 AM EDT

This year we have seen many earwigs, finding some in our homes-at kitchen sink, in bathrooms, and basement.
I was familiar with these insects years ago when growing up in Massachusetts. We are surprised to see them in abundance now in North Dakota
What is happening and what do we do about keeping them out of our home?

Thank you
