Fox Pest Control’s Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas Earwig Exterminator Service

If you’re anything like most people in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas, the thought of earwigs crawling across your floor causes a full-fledged panic attack. Who wants to share their kitchen, toilet, and shower with little pinching creatures? No one should have to worry about that. Here at Fox Pest Control, we work hard to control earwig infestations so you can feel safe in your home.

Signs of an Earwig Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have an earwig problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of an earwig infestation in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas. 

Sightings

The only sign of an earwig infestation is to actually see them crawling around. These insects require moisture in order to survive. In Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas, earwigs are most commonly found in vegetable gardens… not as commonly inside houses. This means they’re most likely brought inside by hitching a ride on clothing, harvested vegetables, dirt from a boot, or even in sleeping bags or tents after a camping trip.

Things You Need to Know About Earwigs

  • Earwigs usually grow up to an inch long.
  • They range in color from light brown to reddish brown to black. 
  • Earwigs in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas, and practically everywhere else for that matter,  have a pair of pincers behind their abdomen, called cerci, that they use to defend themselves, grab prey and mate.
  • Earwigs do not carry any diseases that are harmful to humans or other animals.

Helpful Earwig Prevention Tips:

  • To control earwigs, seal common entry points.
  • Reduce access to water; repair water damage and fix leaks.
  • Cleaning regularly can help stop earwig infestations before they start — and it roots them out from hiding places.

Earwig Control FAQ

How do I get rid of earwigs?

Although they prefer to stay outside, earwigs occasionally find their way inside. If you have lots of earwigs hanging around your home and garden in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas, it’s time to call Fox Pest Control so you can spend your time focused on what matters most and leave the earwig removal to us.

What problems do earwigs cause?

Overall, earwigs won’t cause much damage in the garden, especially when compared to more serious garden pests like Japanese beetles and aphids.

However, even in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas, earwigs can become a minor problem for gardens by invading and eating crops. For example, they can crawl inside corn husks and eat the sweet kernels inside. That’s enough of that, call Fox Pest Control and say goodbye to your earwig infestation!

Can earwigs bite me with their pincers?

If an earwig is handled or feels threatened, it may use those pincers against you. 

Are earwigs poisonous?

Luckily, a bite from an earwig’s pincers isn’t venomous or deadly, and usually does not break your skin.

Will earwigs eat my garden?

Earwigs can eat garden and field crops, including tomatoes, corn, lettuce, strawberries, and other fruits and vegetables, especially during the early growing stages when the plants are most tender. They aren’t as big a problem as garden pests like Japanese beetles and aphids. At Fox Pest Control we can help you get rid of earwigs in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas, before they get their start!

Do earwigs have different kinds of pincers?

The pincers on male earwigs are curved while they’re straight in females.

Will earwigs crawl into my ears?

No, earwigs aren’t likely to crawl on your body, especially not your ears or on your head. Your ears don’t provide enough moisture for them to survive.

Where did earwigs get their name?

Earwigs got their name from a myth that they would crawl into your ears to lay eggs. Your ear isn’t very tempting for them because they wouldn’t be able to survive inside it. So, you don’t have to worry that an earwig will crawl into your ear, much less lay eggs there.

What are earwig pincers used for?

Those pincers, also called “cerci,” are intimidating for a reason. Earwigs use them during mating, to catch prey items, and for self-defense.

I used Fox for the first time this morning, so I can't say a lot about the product. However, their technician, Cawayne Nunes, was great. He talked to me about what he was doing, what i should expect to see, and asked about my concerns.
