Earwigs are common to UK homes and gardens, they are somewhat intimidating looking but they are not poisonous, and they do not spread disease. There are more than twenty species of earwigs in the United States. Some species produce a foul smelling liquid that they use for defence. 

There are some natural methods to deter or kill earwigs, however infestations should be left to professionals to deal with.
