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 unfinished basements, garages, crawl spaces, trash areas, wall voids, and even plumbing fixtures. 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, liquids, and bait.

Outside Treatment: Power-spraying a 6-foot barrier around the foundation of the entire home or business. Treating around windows, doors and all other points of entry. Treating eaves around the home/building as necessary. This consists of sweeping the eaves to remove spider webs, wasp nests and other signs of pests as well as spot treatments to the eaves. Granulating lawns and flower beds to make an additional 15-20 foot barrier around the home.

For the past 20+ years we’ve helped protect over 20,000 homes. We are Salt Lake City’s preferred Exterminator and Pest Control Company.
