Earwig Control

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.

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 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 amount 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 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.
