Earwigs can be an intimidating sight. One of their most prominent features is the large pincers they possess at the rear. These pincers give them a dangerous appearance, which is intensified by the fact that they will lift their tails in the air when they feel threatened. Earwigs are not venomous and do not sting, and earwig bites never happen. Earwigs can deliver painful pinches when molested or threatened, however. Children and pets tend to have the most negative encounters with earwigs. They are naturally curious and have the greatest likelihood of interacting with earwigs when they come across them.

What Are Earwigs?

Earwigs are about three-quarters of an inch long and dark in color. They do not fly. They are small and can fit through almost any opening. Earwigs are long and narrow and have large pincers at the back of their abdomen. They are nocturnal and tend to feed on plant matter, and are also attracted to moist areas. They tend to congregate there in large numbers.

Do Earwigs Really Go Into Your Ear?

A longstanding historical myth states that earwigs can crawl into the ear canal and then burrow into your brain to lay eggs. While this myth is not true, earwigs do like to hide in small dark places. Earwigs can make their way into your house unseen through even the smallest opening. Once inside your house, they tend to hide during the day, only coming out at night to forage for food. Earwigs may not concern themselves with getting into your ear, but they are definitely interested in getting into your house and your stored food. Earwigs prefer to hide in dark, moist, protected areas, and this can make eliminating infestations challenging. 


Earwig control can be challenging for homeowners attempting to eliminate them using ineffective DIY pest control techniques. If you find yourself struggling with earwigs in your home, get in touch with All-Safe Pest & Termite. We can help you get rid of them, and quickly.

The Best Way To Get Rid Of An Earwig Problem

Earwig infestations can be difficult to manage on your own. Bait traps have limited efficacy, and earwigs are a problem that tends to be spread out in your house versus being tightly focused, which decreases the efficacy of DIY chemical treatments. Flies are highly mobile and can travel long distances to get to their destination. They also breed quickly, which makes it easy for them to replenish their numbers, especially when facing ineffective DIY pest control efforts. 


Instead of trying to figure earwigs out on your own, let All-Safe Pest & Termite step in and help you. Our seasoned pest control experts have an extensive history of eliminating all manner of pest infestations from homes, and we know how to get rid of earwigs. 

How To Stop An Earwig Infestation From Coming Back?

Earwigs come inside your home quietly and once there they begin to reproduce. DIY home pest control methods are often ineffective against earwigs, and by the time you realize that you are dealing with an earwig infestation it can be too late to figure it out on your own. The best way to get rid of earwigs and then keep them from coming back is to call All-Safe Pest & Termite.
