Earwig Control in Riverside, CA

get rid of earwigs

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. Call and make your appointment today!

What Our Pest Control Customers Are Saying

  •   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

    thumb Keith P.

      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!

    thumb Julianne M.

      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.

    thumb Chris W.
  •   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.

    thumb Don J.

      We are very pleased with Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control!  Their customer service is beyond excellent!  They are extremely responsive, friendly, skilled, and knowledgeable.  We have an acre, and every kind of pest you can imagine from mice, rats, squirrels, gophers to insects.  We had an issue of rats getting into the attic of our home, and they expertly solved the issue.  They maintain everything under good control, and it is seemless to us.  They send reminder notices regarding their visits, and leave a detailed report of what they did and found.  This is a trusted and reliable company, and would highly recommend their services!

    thumb Rhonda G.
  •   We have been fighting gophers on my property for 2 1/2 years. We have a regular pest control guy that seem to be reducing the population but not illuminating the problem.

    We hired Go-Pher The Kill and the gophers were gone within 24 hours. I can't even believe it. It has now been almost a month since they initially started, they've come back multiple times and have been very thorough.

    They are quick and easy to work it with, their set up was simple. True professionals. If you have gophers hire them!

    thumb Lindsey J.

      The best service I have ever had from a pest company. Go-Pher The Kill is on top of it they have been servicing our home for 4 years and I wanted to take a moment and comment on how AWSOME they are. I send an email and get quick response and prompt service. In the last week they came out quick to get rid of a gopher and again this week for a mouse in my attic. The service from their employer Ryan was tremendous, professional and all around an A+++ for the last many years.

    thumb Jackie S.

      This is great company. We first contacted them when we had gopher problems. And then ants and spiders and then rodents that got inside the 3rd car garage wrecking havoc on our stuff. They always try to get somebody to get to the house right away. Nic Shafer is the one always going to our house. He always ring the doorbell to let me know he's going to check the bait boxes in our backyard. Sometimes he calls beforehand. When I see him, he always asks me how everything is going and if there are problems and he always go and check and solve these problems if we have them. He's polite and knows how to get rid of these pests. Great job Nic!

    thumb Anne R.
  •   I have been using this company since I moved to Riverside 3 years ago and I'm very happy with them. Gophers were invading our property and they got rid of them very quickly. Anytime there is new activity, Mike is just a call away. He responds promptly and is very efficient. I would definitely recommend them!

    thumb Anabel D.

      Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control is the only company we call to handle our pest issues.  Mike is always willing to handle any job we throw his way.  Incredibly reliable, efficient, affordable and always goes beyond the call of duty.  Last minute phone calls to handle rodent issues are never a problem - Mike has always been there for us.  We highly recommend this company to all.

    thumb Deana V.

      John came out right away and set multiple gopher traps. He was knowledgeable and thorough, even cleaning up the dirt from the gopher mounds. Looking forward to having these destructive rodents permanently removed!
