Forgive me if I posted this before, but can anyone tell me the name of the bug that is on my roses? It has two things on its back end that look like pincers and it is brown. About half an inch long. Any ideas?

Sounds like a female or young earwig. My roses up in Ct used to get them so bad I stopped cutting roses to bring indoors.
