Earwigs get their name from an old European myth that they would crawl into the ears of sleeping people and then tunnel into their brains. While this is not true, earwigs are very good at making their way into your house and making it their home. They have a pair of large pincers on the back of their abdomens that lends them a fearsome look, and an earwig discovery in a home often causes fear and concern.

 

All-Safe Pest & Termite does not want you to be afraid of any pests you might encounter in your home. An earwig infestation is something we can help you with. We can handle all of your needs for pest control in Frisco

Habits And Behaviors Of Common Earwigs

Outside, earwigs love to live under mulch, rocks, woodpiles, and other areas that offer them dark, moist places. One of the biggest things that draw earwigs to a home is moisture. Earwigs gravitate to dark, moist areas of a home, especially if there is little to no traffic. Earwig bites are not something you have to be worried about because earwigs do not bite or sting, nor are they venomous. They do, however, possess large pincers on their abdomen and can inflict a painful pinch if handled, agitated, or stepped on. 

 

Do not worry about earwigs and their large pincers in your house. All-Safe Pest & Termite can help you eliminate earwigs and all other pests. All-Safe Pest & Termite knows earwig control, and we want to help you. 

Problems Earwigs Can Cause In Your Home

Since earwigs love dwelling in dark, moist areas, they can potentially track bacteria into homes and spread them. Further, earwigs often have negative interactions with pets and children, and nasty pinches can result. However, the biggest worry about seeing earwigs in your home is that their presence often indicates the presence of other pests. Earwigs love dark, moist areas, and seeing them in your home may show you have leaks and wood damage. Worse, the very same circumstances that draw them to your home might also attract termites.

 

Do not take a chance that earwigs or other pests are entering your home uninvited, and do not risk potential damage to your home from termites. Call All-Safe Pest & Termite to get rid of earwigs and any other pests that should not be there. 

Why Earwigs Invade Houses

There are several reasons why you might be seeing earwigs in your home. First, for earwigs to gain easy access to your house, they must find a way inside. They usually exploit gaps around doors and windows. Next, for earwigs to want to stay, they have to find dark, moist places where they can thrive. Leaks under sinks, wet basements, or dripping appliances like dishwashers and washing machines are all highly attractive to earwigs. 

 

Earwigs in your home are not fun, but All-Safe Pest & Termite is on your side. We don’t like them, either, and we know how to get rid of earwigs.

The Best Way To Get Rid Of A Earwigs Infestation 

DIY pest control methods do not work well for earwigs. They do not bait well, are very reclusive, and are keen to avoid contact with humans. Because an earwig infestation may indicate greater problems in a house and the potential for termites, securing professional pest control is essential to not only getting rid of the earwig problem but also getting rid of other household pests as well. 

 

All-Safe Pest & Termite stands ready to help you get rid of earwigs and ensure all other pests are gone too. Contact us today for all of your Frisco pest control needs.
