Chicago Earwig Treatment


Earwig

How To Identify An Earwig Infestation

Appearance- Earwigs have an intimidating look about them with their pincers on the end of their abdomens, even though they are in reality harmless to humans and pets. Earwigs are only the size of a small bug, ¼ to 1 inch long. Old wives tales state that they will enter your ears - hence the name, which has created an entire culture around the misplaced fear of them.

Behavior - Earwigs tend to prefer damp, peaceful environments. They will feed on plants and plant material they find available. Infestations are easy to pick out because if you see multiple earwigs within your home then most likely there is an earwig problem that needs to be addressed. Earwig control is essential to keeping the problem under control as earwigs can become a nuisance if they begin to reproduce in or around your Chicago home.

Why You Might Have Earwigs

Earwigs are simple bugs and are looking for shelter and safety. Homes, apartments or yards can offer a safe place to live and breed which is why earwigs may be drawn to your property. They enjoy being near water, so rooms such as a bathroom, laundry room or kitchen are ideal places for earwigs to create a new home in.

Keeping your lawn cut and keeping an eye on basements and garages periodically can keep an earwig infestation from occurring, but if it has already become an issue then giving us a call for earwig removal is the next best step to reclaiming your Chicago home.

Reasons To Treat Your Earwig Problem Immediately

While most earwigs will only be in your home for shelter, some outdoor earwigs may start to eat your grass or anything in your garden. The damage that can be done is minimal, but any damage done by an earwig problem needs to be addressed. We will come to provide earwig control so that outdoor earwigs do not make it inside your Chicago residence and the earwigs that have made it inside will find a new spot to live in.

What to expect from our treatment


  • Target the Source
    First we identify and target the source of your Earwig problem with our custom treatment.
  • Inside Treatment
    We then treat unfinished basements, garages, crawl spaces, trash areas, attics; wherever there is the possibility for a pest to enter your home or make residence, we will create a barrier to protect you. We deploy a variety of techniques depending on what works best for your situation.
  • 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 it is taken back to any potential nests, destroying them.

August 19th, 2017

Excellent Job! I recommended your Company to our Indian Ridge Subdivision on our website! Very professional. The only problem on the Website was that everyone was very skeptical & apprehensive of the young man going from door to door. Then commented that his shirt did not have the Company Logo? and that they did not see his Truck with Logo, since it was parked down the street! You might want to correct this and maybe give them Company brochures! Irene Silva
