Phoenix Earwig Pest Control
June – Augest have been BIG EARWIG months this year throughout the Phoenix Valley!
Along with regular professional PEST CONTROL Service, one of the KEYS to Earwig Control is MOISTURE CONTROL. The best exterminator on earth will suggest you remove MULCH and PLANT DEBRIS, or STONES and objects AROUND YOUR HOME and yard! This will help DRY out areas around the house, and make it INCOMPATIBLE for Earwigs. Also, make sure your sprinkler or drip systems aren’t OVER watering, as this only promotes earwig infestations.
Did You Know… The Name “Earwig” comes from old European superstition that Earwigs crawl INTO peoples EARS as they sleep, and BORE into their BRAINS. This, of course, is NOT true.
Earwigs are a very common pest infesting outside and inside yards and homes throughout the Phoenix AZ Valley. Earwigs, like many pests, are nocturnal and hide during the day in shady areas with a little moisture. They love areas under or in MULCH, usually provided by fallen LEAVES and dead PLANT material, in landscaping. Young earwigs CANNOT live without MOISTURE… (Which they get an abundance of with automatic sprinkler systems and MONSOON season!!!)
Tip: We have to keep gardens wet especially during the HOT months. Control Earwigs in your vegetable garden by spraying garden down with an insecticidal soap like Dr. Bronners insecticidal soap and water.
