Inhaling earwigs

Morning all. At 3:00 this morning I woke up feeling wheezy, took two puffs of my inhaler and felt something hit the back of my throat. After several minutes of spluttering I discovered the source of the problem was an earwig that had crawled inside the case and decided to have a rest just inside the mouthpiece. This was quite unpleasant but came as no surprise, as the same thing happened just a couple of weeks ago.

We seem to be overrun with them at the moment and they're especially keen on hanging around in my inhalers (which I'll be keeping in a tin from now on). Has anyone else experienced this? I've had asthma since childhood and until recently it had never happened to me.
