What Does an Earwig Infestation Look Like?
Seeing earwigs in your home is the main way to know whether you have an infestation. However, sightings can be rare since earwigs often congregate outdoors under rocks, mulch, stone and compost piles. Earwigs prefer these dark and damp environments because they provide shelter and a space for reproduction.
While earwigs tend to frequent outdoor spaces, these insects can seek shelter inside your home or business and gain access through cracks or other entry points. Earwigs will seek areas that mimic the outdoor conditions they like, often infesting basements and other cool, damp places. Like many pests, earwigs often seek shelter inside during the winter, making the cold months excellent times to examine your home.
To determine whether you have an earwig infestation in your house, inspect cool, damp areas like basements and bathrooms. An infestation may be difficult to spot since these insects burrow and hide. The best way to verify whether these bugs have invaded your home or business is to seek out a pest control company to do a home inspection.
How to Stop an Earwig Infestation
Finding earwigs in your home may be startling, but you can prevent these insects from invading using a few simple techniques:
- Vacuuming and sweeping: If you see earwigs in your home, you can prevent their numbers from growing by gathering them with a vacuum or broom and disposing of them.
- Setting traps: While discarding earwigs with a vacuum might control the problem, you can also use traps like a moistened, rolled-up newspaper. Earwigs will gather in these spaces, allowing for easy location and disposal.
- Clearing debris: Sometimes, earwigs come into the home because of materials outside the home’s perimeter. Clearing ivy, leaves in the gutters and other debris near your home or business can discourage these insects from finding entry points or hiding spots.
- Applying pesticides: The best pest control for earwigs within the home is to utilize pesticides around your home’s perimeter. You can rely on the pest control professionals at Pest Pros for one-time, annual or quarterly services.
Solutions like vacuuming, setting traps and clearing debris can help you mitigate an earwig infestation, but the only way to end the invasion is by contacting professionals like Pest Pros to treat your home.
