Here’s what you need to know about earwigs and earwig control:
- What Are Earwigs? Earwigs are peculiar looking ground insects often characterized by their pincers. The presence of pincers doesn’t mean that earwigs are dangerous, and earwigs are often more annoying than anything else.
- Where do They Live? This particular pest spends a good amount of time around damp areas in and around homes, in fact, earwigs love to infest any part of the home where there is water. This includes bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms primarily, but they will also make their way into every other area in the house.
- How do I Make Them Leave? Make sure earwigs have no hiding places left. Push old leaves, timber, or piles of firewood away from the foundation of a house to make sure dampness and moisture are not allowed to accumulate. It is also important to check gutters to make sure water is flowing away from the home's foundation. Finally, it is important to seek professional help for a rigorous treatment plan to rid all earwigs from the home.
