What Do Earwigs Look Like?
Earwigs usually measure between 1/4 to 1 inch long and have an elongate, flat body. They are typically pale brown with dark markings, or uniformly reddish brown or black, with paler legs. Their name comes from an old superstition that these bugs would enter people’s ears at night and bore into the brain; fortunately this is not true. People probably created this superstition because of the creepy looking forceps-like cerci that they sport. Earwigs actually use these as a defense against predators and to capture their prey. These bugs have four wings; the front wings are short and leathery and the hind wings are fan shaped and membranous and kept folded under the front wings.

How Do You Get Earwigs?
Earwigs will enter homes in large numbers if they are able to find a point of entry because they are attracted to areas of high moisture and humidity; basking in the warm temperatures of your home. You may have earwigs in your kitchen, bathroom or basement where they will be looking for food sources that include carbohydrates or protein; including flour, dried meat, paper and even glue.
Hazards Of Not Treating Earwigs
Reasons To Treat Your Earwigs Problem Immediately
Earwigs are not considered dangerous to the health of you, your family or your pets, but they are considered a nuisance pest. They won’t bite or sting and aren’t known to transmit any diseases, but their sheer numbers inside your home can be an annoyance and they can also damage items in your home, including paper, photos, wallpaper and books. They are also known to release a foul smelling odor when crushed and some species of earwigs can actually squirt this liquid when frightened.

What To Expect From Our Treatment
Target The Source: First we identify and target the source of your pest problem with our custom treatment.
Inside Treatment: We then treat the baseboards inside all rooms including the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, basements, and garages. Wherever there is the possibility for a pest to enter your home or make residence, we create a barrier to protect you. We deploy a variety of techniques depending on what works best for your situation, including residual powder, gel, and bait.
Outside Treatment: We create a protective barrier around your home using a granular base around the foundation. We then treat windows and doors, as well as under siding, to keep the pests out. We will also place a granular bait in your flower and mulch beds so that bait is taken back to any potential nests, destroying them.
At Aptive Environmental, we guarantee our treatment plan for one full year. If any new Earwig problems or other covered pests, we will treat immediately and at no cost to you.
“Immediately” means you are our priority – not when we can fit you into our schedule.
The barriers we put in place to protect your home and family against pests will naturally break down over time. This is why over the course of the year we will regularly reapply treatments to ensure your home is protected. For more details on our treatment schedule read our Home Protection Plan page or give us a call.
Your home is your largest investment.
Let Aptive Environmental protect it against pests!
