Frequently Asked Questions

Are Earwigs Dangerous?

Earwigs are generally considered nuisance pests and are not dangerous to humans. They do not sting, and their pincers are not strong enough to cause harm. However, earwigs can cause damage to plants and may contaminate food products when they enter homes. Their presence in large numbers can be unsettling and may indicate underlying moisture issues in a home.

Why do I have an Earwig problem?

Earwigs are attracted to properties that offer them food, shelter, and moisture. They may enter homes and buildings in search of warmth, moisture, and food sources such as plants, fruits, and other insects. Overgrown vegetation, cluttered outdoor spaces, and improperly sealed doors or windows can attract earwigs to your property.

Where will I find Earwigs?

Earwigs can be found both indoors and outdoors. Outside, they may be found in damp, dark areas such as under rocks, mulch, or decaying vegetation. Inside, they may be found in dark, moist areas like basements, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. They are most active at night and are more likely to be encountered during the evening hours.

How do I get rid of Earwigs?

To get rid of earwigs, first identify the areas where they are congregating. Implement proper sanitation practices, reduce clutter, and eliminate moisture issues in and around your home. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows to prevent earwigs from entering. Use insecticides, baits, or traps as needed. For persistent infestations, consider hiring a professional pest control service.

How can I prevent Earwigs?

Preventing earwigs involves maintaining a clean and clutter-free property, addressing moisture issues, and sealing any entry points. Regularly clean both inside and outside your home, paying special attention to potential hiding spots. Repair any water leaks, control humidity levels, and seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows.
