what is this bug?

They are all around my lettuce. You move a leaf and they drop off and scurry under ground or something to hide under. Worry about them? If so what do I do to kill or repel?

When you get to be my age, you don't need ear wigs. It just happens naturally.

Great pic, by the way.

gumbo,

I can't take credit for the joke or picture. It was just one of many Google hits.
