She won't go anywhere, they are hiding in a dark place. But when you take bread, for example, poorly packaged bread, you may well stumble upon this insect unpleasantly, but no more

Theoretically, this is possible, but a person and, moreover, his ears and nose are not of interest to the two-tails. They do not belong to blood-sucking parasites, and they lay eggs in the soil.

Not while sleeping, but while walking in the park near the hostel, I put on someone else's hat and after a few seconds I felt very strange sensations in my right ear, then it began to buzz (this is tin)

Of course began to panic, everyone thought that I was stunned, except for Yura ofk, he began to poke around in his ear with a stick and shine a flashlight, but this stuff only got deeper

Well, let's go to the hostel, pour water into the ear, then oil ... this nit tried to get out, but Yura, with a slight movement of tweezers, grabbed it and showed it to me. It was a midge the size of 2 match heads ...

As for the two-tailed or earwig - it does not get into the ear and does not lay eggs there. This is just a legend. In ancient times, people believed that the female earwig climbed into the ear, bit off the eardrum and laid its eggs there. Other insects, most often cockroaches, can enter a person through the nose and ears.

My counselor in the camp once told me a story about how a cockroach climbed into the ear of her friend in the hostel while sleeping. They tried to get it on their own, but they managed to get only half of the cockroach and therefore had to go to the hospital.

Wildly vomit story, and also one of the reasons why I'm terribly afraid of cockroaches.

Maybe, but the probability of this is much less than helminthic invasions. That is, to be afraid, nevertheless, is for the giblets, not the ears - insects will not last long in the external organs.

Found on the internet: in fact, the dvuhvostka is an insect that is completely harmless to human health, which, rather, should be called "ear-wing" - something like this, translated from English, reads her name. Obviously, the British noticed the peculiarity of the structure of the insect: when folded, its wings, together with the elytra, are vaguely similar to the human auricle. Who knows, maybe it was thanks to the misunderstood translation that stories about the atrocities of this insect appeared.

Yes it can. There are many such stories, watch the video.

The story as a bonus to the video:

According to the Rocket News 24 website, a man named Che woke up at night from severe ear pain and sensation that something is moving in his auditory organ.

In a medical institution, a Chinese man described his complaints to doctors and asked them to figure out what was happening to him as soon as possible. The aesculapians who examined Che's affected ear came to the conclusion that there was a foreign body in his auditory organ.

The doctors decided to verify the correctness of the diagnosis: one of them armed himself with tweezers and carefully inserted the instrument into the external auditory canal.

During this manipulation, a hospital employee stumbled upon a foreign body and pulled it out. Imagine the amazement of all those present when a writhing centipede appeared from the Chinese's ear.

It turned out that the arthropod that lived in Che's damp room took a liking to his auditory organ as a burrow and “settled” in a new place of residence in the middle of the night ...

I'll just leave it here:

Answer 12

It depends on what is considered "inside" the body. In the ear - maybe in the lungs - with a great desire and a great unwillingness of a person to wake up, but obviously not in the intestines. If the insect is of the right size, then it can, of course. But not through the anus, because it is quite tightly compressed, and not through the nose, because there are hairs that are very sensitive and cause itching at the slightest irritation, but it can get into the ear.
