What Is Earwig Extermination?
Earwigs are recognizable by their large pinchers. The pinchers stick out behind their abdomen and look very intimidating. These critters live together in large numbers and reproduce very quickly. This is what makes earwig infestations so troubling.
They like to hide in piles of lawn debris, compost, and within trees when outside. Once they’re inside, they are attracted to damp and moist areas. Earwigs often show up in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.
What Are the Risks of Earwigs?
Beyond being unwanted in your home, earwigs also present several risks, including being pinched by their pinchers, their fast reproduction rate, and when the weather is wet and cold, they want to get inside your house even more than before. Ultimately, earwigs aren’t dangerous. They will pinch you, but this pinch rarely even breaks skin. They also don’t spread any diseases to humans.
Challenges Caused by Earwigs
Earwigs aren’t dangerous to humans, but they still pose a set of challenges. They’re an obnoxious and hazardous garden pest, as they eat dying plant matter and smaller beneficial insects. In addition, earwigs come in large numbers and rapidly reproduce. This means if you see one earwig in your house, there are most likely many more hiding in dark spaces. If you spot an earwig, call Apex Pest Control so we can find the spot they’re entering your home and get it sealed up
How to Prevent an Earwig Infestation
Prevention is essential to avoiding large infestations and controlling current infestations. The following steps are crucial to ridding your home of earwigs. These steps are also beneficial in preventing other pest infestations, as well.
- Cut off their food supply: clean tables and countertops after meals. Remove food, crumbs, etc. Inspect plants before bringing them inside.
- Be mindful of exterior maintenance: Keep shrubs and greenery pruned back at least 2 feet from your home. Foliage touching the house is an easy access point for pests and critters.
- Seal cracks and crevices: Inspect the inside and outside of your home for any cracks where earwigs could be entering.
- Call Apex Pest Control: When you call us, we can apply high-tech products across the barrier of your home that acts as an invisible wall. This is a highly effective earwig pest control method.
How Apex Pest Control Gets Rid of Earwigs
At Apex Pest Control, we believe that prevention is important. Bimonthly pest control helps to eliminate earwigs and many other pests. We visit every other month and monitor any changes around your home, including any shifting pest populations and new factors that could be a risk.
Pest populations often shift because of weather, or a larger problem. With bi-monthly pest control, we can be aware of these shifts and potential problems earlier, which means that pests are much less likely to get into your home and have enough time to start an infestation.
Our assessment is followed with a treatment plan that includes nontoxic, long-lasting, and effective integrated pest control.
