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.

  •   Love these guys, they have saved me many times with multiple Gophers in my yard. The pest control aspect is great as well. The staff is courteous and helpful with any questions you may have. Definately recommend them.

    thumb MaryAnn M.

      This company is the best. If you have gophers and want to get rid of them, give GTK a call.  I tried everything on my own with no luck.  GTK is on the ball and responsive and effective!  Been using them a couple years now, so I know what I'm talking about.

    thumb Lou M.

      I was very pleased with the service we received from Go-Pher the Kill!! We saw the truck parked at a neighbor's house and called to get a quote. Within 30 minutes, Nic was at our door to check out the backyard and give us a quote. He was very professional and knowledgeable.
    We hired him on the spot and He was done setting the traps within an hour. Nic went above and beyond to make our yard look so much better! He filled in holes, removed dirt, and saved as much grass as he could. I really appreciated his expertise on all things Go-Phers and lawns!!!!  He came back a week later and the Go-Pher was caught!!!! I've never been so excited to see a dead animal. The follow up customer service was awesome too!! I would highly recommend this company!!! Thanks Nic!!!!!

    thumb Jasmyn S.
  •   Nick from Go-Pher the Kill has been great. He has been servicing our home for the past 2 years. He is top-notch and provides great service on a monthly basis, and most importantly there aren't any rodents or insects at our home. Keep up the good work!

    thumb Sergio S.

      I have been using this company for the last 7 years to control the rodents at our residence on 2.5 acres. They are extremely professional and proficient in what they do. We really appreciate their service. Mike and Sabas do a fantastic job. Would highly recommend this company

    thumb Rebecca D.

      We have had Go-Pher the kill for the past 4+ years. We had a major ant problem and spider problem. They took care of them. I have had ant problems in my house numerous time, I just call them up and they come right out and take care of it for me. They are always willing to got the extra mile.
     Sabas R. is very nice and always asks if we have had any problems. He's the best.
    I would recommend Go-Pher the Kill to anyone that needs pest control. They are great!!

    thumb Ken K.

      Nic Shafer with Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control is a gopher's worst nightmare! We contacted this company due to our gopher infestation in our backyard lawn.  Our home is perched in the hills above Riverside within the Lake Hills community, so we have a lot of wildlife.  This year was an exceptionally active year for gophers and other insects and wildlife due to the abundance of rain during the previous winter.  Normally, I wouldn't mind the occasional gophers in previous years. But this summer the abundance of gophers was getting out of control. They were tearing up our lawn right next to our pool which was causing dirt and rocks to be thrown into our pool from the gopher mounds. It was time to call a professional.
    The customer service on my initial call was amazing.  They sent a technician named Nic almost immediately.  I met Nic on his first service day at my home and he was SO friendly, knowledgeable and just a great person.  He spent time explaining the tactics they use, which was trapping, baiting and the use of carbon monoxide to penetrate the tunnels.  
    After 3-4 visits within 30 days our gopher problem vanished.  I will continue to use Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control in the future and I would like to commend Nic Shafer for his excellent service and attitude!!!

    thumb Salman N.

      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!!!!

    thumb Laurie S.
  •   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.

    thumb Scott S.

      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!

    thumb Jeannette B.

      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.

    thumb Sarah R.
  •   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!!

    thumb Chelsea J.

      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.

    thumb Rick H.

      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.
