There is definitely an aspect to this insect which creates a serious creep factor inside the most blasé homeowner. The fact that they look like little cockroaches with pinchers might help explain it. No matter what the reason, no homeowner wants to share their home or their yard with this pest.
Earwigs are an insect that is found in three basic colors, black, red or brown. The fact that they do not seem to carry diseases infectious to humans doesn’t matter, as they are still one of the most hated bug around.
Although this insect does have wings and is capable of flight, most of them prefer to remain on the ground where they prefer dark and moist habitats.. And yes, they have occasionally been found inside the human ear, but they do not penetrate into the brain and lay eggs. They are omnivores, meaning that they feed on vegetation as well as insects, their eggs or larvae.
They have a tendency to be quite social, which you will notice if you move a planter or a large bag of soil and notice the crowd underneath it that runs from the sunlight. The most harm that they will do is to your landscaping, especially newly planted seeds or seedlings, fruits or vegetables especially corn. The softer the matter, the more they seem to like it. Keeping ripe fruit off of the ground, dead vegetation and leaves raked up, and using a mower bag can all help keep them at bay. The best way to control this pest is to call or e-mail Onstar Pest Control.
At the appointed time, our trained technician will arrive at your home promptly and perform a thorough inspection of the known habitats for this insect both inside and outside. All materials that we use to control insects are approved and regulated by the state of California. Once this inspection is done, we will discuss your treatment options. Depending on where the infestation occurs, treatment can be both indoors and outdoors. Once the initial phase is done, we strongly recommend that your follow up with a monthly or bi-monthly maintenance program to continue controlling earwigs.
