Earwigs are a commanding sight. Long and thin, their bodies end at the rear with a surprisingly large set of pincers, lending them a fierce look. When threatened, earwigs will lift the pincers in the air menacingly, putting them on full display. Children and pets tend to be the ones who have the most interactions with earwigs because they are the ones who tend to be the most curious. Importantly, earwig infestation is growing more common in the area.

Have you seen earwigs in your Frisco home and aren’t sure what to do about them? Earwig control is important, and All-Safe Pest & Termite knows all about it. Call us today, and let us be your company of choice for pest control in Frisco.

What Do Earwigs Look Like?

Earwigs are dark brown and about three-quarters of an inch long. They have two prominent antennae on their heads and six legs. By far, their most identifying feature is the large pincers they carry on the rear of their bodies. They do have small wings but they are not overt fliers, tending to try to escape from negative encounters by running. As mentioned before, when earwigs feel threatened, they will lift their pincers into the air threateningly.

If you need to get rid of earwigs, All-Safe Pest & Termite is the company you need to call. We use state-of-the-art pest control techniques, and we can get earwigs out of your house.

The Problems Earwigs Can Create Inside Your Home

Earwigs in Frisco prefer to live in dark, moist areas. They also prefer to live outside in warmer months, meaning that they have the potential to track bacteria in your home. Another potential negative aspect associated with earwigs is that, though they are not venomous, they can indeed use their large pincers to deliver painful pinches. Children and especially pets have a higher chance of these negative encounters due to their exploring areas of the properties in which earwigs tend to habitate, and the tendency of some pets to want to go after any bugs they see in the house.

Earwig bites are nothing to be concerned about, but earwig pinches are. If you see earwigs in your home, drop a line to All-Safe Pest & Termite. Let us help you get pests out of your house.

Tips To Prevent Earwigs From Entering Your Home

Earwigs can enter your home through any available opening. Once there, they tend to hide in damp, moist places. Here are some ways to prevent earwigs from coming into your home:

  • Eliminate water sources. Fix leaks inside and outside to discourage earwigs.
  • Clean up outside ground clutter. Earwigs prefer nesting in dark, moist areas.
  • Seal your home. Earwigs are small, so be sure to be thorough.
  • Reduce lights at night. Earwigs are drawn close to lights, especially at night.

These tips can help decrease the chances that you will have to deal with earwigs in your home, but can’t completely eliminate the possibility that you will. When you find yourself dealing with earwigs, contact All-Safe Pest & Termite. We know how to get rid of earwigs.
