How to Get Rid of Earwigs on Your Property?

Earwigs are nocturnal insects that are known for their pointed pincers. They are approximately ¾ of an inch long and have a dark brown or black body with yellow or orange markings. Earwigs are omnivorous and feed on decaying plant matter, insects, and other small invertebrates. They are known to be particularly attracted to the scent of a person's body odor, which can lead to them invading homes in search of food or shelter.

If you have noticed earwigs on your property, you will want to seek out professional help. Our team at Green Wing Services is here to help you get rid of earwigs and keep them off your property.

What Are Signs You Have Earwigs?

Earwigs are not known for being particularly destructive, but they can pose a health risk to humans. Earwigs are known to carry certain types of bacteria and viruses, such as streptococcus, staphylococcus, and hepatitis. If you are bitten by an earwig, you should seek medical attention immediately.

Some of the most common signs that you have an earwig infestation on your property include:

  • Small holes in screens
  • Small holes in the siding
  • Small holes in window screens
  • & moreĀ 

If you have noticed any of these signs, it is important to call in a professional as soon as possible. Earwigs have the ability to reproduce quickly, and if you do not take care of the problem quickly, you could find yourself dealing with an even larger infestation.

We use the following methods to get rid of earwigs on your property:

  • Inspecting your property for signs of earwig infestations
  • Conducting baiting and trapping services to capture earwigs
  • Cleaning up potential nesting areas to prevent earwigs from coming back

After we have gotten rid of the earwigs on your property, we can take steps to prevent them from coming back. We can conduct inspections of your property, clean up potential nesting areas, and more.

How Can You Prevent Earwigs From Invading Your Home?

Earwigs can be a nuisance when they invade your home, but there are steps you can take to prevent them from entering in the first place. By following these tips, you can protect your home from earwig infestations:

  1. Seal cracks and gaps: Inspect your home for any cracks or gaps in the foundation, walls, windows, and doors. Seal these openings to prevent earwigs from entering.
  2. Reduce moisture: Earwigs are attracted to damp areas, so it's important to address any moisture issues in and around your home. Fix leaky pipes, ensure proper drainage, and use dehumidifiers if necessary.
  3. Remove outdoor debris: Earwigs often hide in piles of leaves, mulch, and other outdoor debris. Keep your yard clean and free of clutter to discourage earwigs from nesting near your home.
  4. Trim vegetation: Trim back any overgrown vegetation, especially near the foundation of your home. This eliminates potential hiding spots for earwigs and reduces their access points.
  5. Use outdoor lighting strategically: Earwigs are attracted to bright lights at night. Consider using yellow or sodium vapor lights, which are less appealing to these pests, or position lights away from entrances to your home.
