Earwig Control in Riverside, CA

Earwig Control

Male earwig

Earwigs are unwanted pests that often frighten many people.  This is primarily due to the pincers that are attached to the back of the abdomens on their brownish bodies.  Although these insects appear to be dangerous to humans, they are more likely to just be a common garden pest and do not pose any real health hazards. They are common in Riverside, Corona, Murrieta, Menifee, Temecula and many other states.

Earwigs are most active at night and enjoy dark, cool areas during the day.  They seek out moist places and can often be found under the loose soil, dense weed growth, under loose boards or rocks, and behind thick vine growth.  You may also spot them crawling in and out of cracks in the sidewalk.

Earwigs tend to feed on many different sources.  This includes organisms that can be either dead or alive, soft fruits, seedling plants, and decaying organic matter.  These insects are a nuisance because they are attracted to moist areas around the outside of your home.

If earwigs find that the outside conditions are too dry, hot, or cold, they will attempt to seek refuge in the interior of your home.  They can easily be vacuumed or swept up when one is spotted here or there.  However, if a large number of earwigs accumulate inside your home, a great option is to call an earwig control specialist.

Earwig Control Services Offered

In addition to eating the flowers and plants in your garden, earwigs are attracted to light and can quickly become a nuisance on your patio or porch during a hot summer’s night.  We are an exterminator that offers different pest control options to rid your property of earwigs.  Our earwig control methods include:

  • Chemical Control —  As your premier exterminator, we offer customized pest control treatment plans that include the application of insecticides to help rid your property of these unattractive pests.
    • Sanitation Control — Earwig control includes the elimination of their hiding places.  This may include moving the decorative stone, logs, and loose timber away from the foundation of your home.  You do not want the perimeter of your home to be near organic materials, dead leaves, or heavy amounts of mulch.
    • Exclusion — The best way to keep earwigs out of your home is to block the way they are entering.  Our trained technicians will perform a thorough inspection to identify possible entry points and discuss them with you along with your options.
    • Trapping — If Earwigs have made their way into your home, insect traps can be placed in areas of activity to provide an additional level of control.

Our professionals will create a unique earwig control plan that will rid your home of earwigs.  We will also assess your property and make useful suggestions such as adjusting outdoor lighting.


It is rumored that earwigs crawl into the ears of humans to lay their eggs!  This is only a myth and completely untrue.  However, it certainly doesn’t make these pests any more desirable.  We offer pest control services that will successfully rid your property of unwanted earwigs.  If you were wondering how to get rid of earwigs, wonder no more.

What Our Pest Control Customers Are Saying

  • Earwig Control  I am so impressed with the professionalism and the efficiency of this company. Gophers were destroying our yard and within the first week they caught 4. I am so happy with the 30 day guarantee because I have had to call two more times after the initial trapping (gophers like our yard)They showed up when they said they would and took care of business. I HIGHLY recommend them!!!!

    Earwig Control  I had the front and backyard sprayed for black widows. The tech was knowledgeable, professional and on time. I hope not see anymore creepy crawlers.

    Earwig Control Scott S.

    Earwig Control  I was having problems with spiders and ants! I called and spoke to Mike and he sent a technician named Nic the same day. Nic was here for over an hour taking down webs and servicing my home. He was very friendly and thorough and advised me on what I could expect in the next couple of days. So far I'm happy with the results, I would highly recommend using their service and will be signing up on a ongoing service. Thanks guys you guys are awesome!

  • Earwig Control  This was my second time using GoPher the Kill for my gophers and I'm very satisfied with their service!
    First time I believe they caught 3 (set traps, and even used CO2 as the gophers were pretty settled in yards of our new home).  This time around they caught 1 and that did the trick. I believe it's been almost a year between these two visits.
    Very friendly staff, efficient and thorough. I received a call this morning since my 30 day service (the one service lasts unlimited visits for 30 days) is almost up. I appreciate them trying to come out again and reminding me before my 30 days is up.

    Earwig Control  These guys are awesome! We had a mole that, despite our best efforts, we could not get rid of.  We reached out to Go-Pher, they provided us a fair estimate and scheduled a day to come out.  Upon arrival they actual slightly decreased the estimate based on the size of our yard. A few days later, they came back and confirmed they caught the mole! They checked back a week later to make sure we didn't have any other intruders and set some bait to make sure they got everything.  What I was most pleased with, however, was the final follow up call we got yesterday.  They called to remind us that our 30 day guaranty period was almost over so just wanted to make sure we haven't had any additional problems.  Really awesome customer service!!

    Earwig Control  They caught two gophers in one day. Do not wait to hire them. I tried everything to kill these rodents but was unsuccessful. They came out and set up traps and the next day two were caught. I wasted so much time trying to do it myself that the gophers ended up doing a lot of damage. I'm mad at myself for not calling them earlier.

    Earwig Control Rick H.
  • Earwig Control  I'd been dealing with gophers for a very long time. But once they started to get near the house, it was time to get help.  I saw the truck with the ugly gopher on it and decided that was the company to use.  Nick came out and set traps, returned the next day catching two of those buggers. Nick was very informative and helpful, answered all my exhausting questions. A big thank you.

    Earwig Control Vicki W.

    Earwig Control  Excellent company! I just recently completed installing a newly landscaped yard and after a few months of enjoying my yard- it stared to get attacked by gophers.
    I tired to deal with the issue myself (of ridding  the gophers ) for a couple of months with no luck.
    Then Nic came out and noticed the damage, set a few traps for overnight and when he came back the following morning - he was able to catch the 3 gophers that were behind my headaches.
    But what really set Nic apart - was after he was done with removing the gophers he took the time to remove the large dirt piles left by the gophers and blend it all back in to the existing landscaping like they were never there. Nic is awesome and will spend the time to give you some insight on gopher habits.

    Earwig Control Joe G.

    Earwig Control  Great service. We've been fighting the gophers for the last couple years with no luck. Called Go-Pher The Killer and they took care of the problem. We didn't even have to be home. 3 gophers were caught overnight with no sweat off my back. Great company

    Earwig Control Keith P.
  • Earwig Control  Highly recommend! Nic was so helpful and knowledgeable when it came to our specific situation. He answered all our questions and was very thorough. He showed us each step in the process of catching and removing the gophers and how to recognize new activity. These guys know what they're doing. Thank you Nic!

    Earwig Control Julianne M.

    Earwig Control  Go-Pher is awesome! You won't be disappointed with this company. I had a gopher problem on my property, which is a little over 1/4 acre, and Nic came out and set about 8 traps. He came by the following week and removed what he had caught, then baited the holes as a final barrier against future gophers. Nic was great! He was on time, very knowledgeable, and was in and out in less than an hour. Thanks Nic.

    Earwig Control Chris W.

    Earwig Control  The past two years we have had rat(s) in our attic.  We have used Go-Pher the Kill both times and have been extremely happy with their service.  Although we received the full month coverage, the rat was caught early and problem solved.  The pricing is good; we obtained other estimates before settling on this company.
    The "exterminator," Nick, is a very professional and courteous professional.  In addition to setting the traps, he gave up tips and adjustments to make to prevent a recurrence.  Perhaps if we had listened, we wouldn't have had a problem the next year!
    Overall, our experience with Go-Pher the Kill has been great and I have no problem recommending them for your pest killing needs.

    Earwig Control Derek B.
  • Earwig Control  I had a gopher problem that was driving me crazy and I decided to look for a professional to take care of my issue. After looking around and reading reviews I decided to give Go-pher the kill a call and I'm glad I did. They displayed great customer service and answered all my questions regarding their services. Nick came out to my house for the initial call and he was very informative and extremely professional when it came to gopher catching, he set a couple traps and bait and the following day he came back to discover that he caught two gophers in my lawn. I'm very happy with the service and decided to continue using Gopher the kill's monthly service. Thank you Nick.

    Earwig Control Haydee L.

    Earwig Control  I highly recommend this company for any type of pest control. They are professional, clean and always friendly. My house had issues with rodents, spiders, ants...when we bought it and these guys have kept ALL of them away for years now. If I do see a spider, I can just call and they'll come back out!

    Earwig Control Sara M.

    Earwig Control  Mike is very responsive to my requests and my technician takes the time to hear my concerns and addresses them very efficiently.  Best pest control I've had and intend to keep!
