Earwigs are a type of pest that seeks out dark moist areas to live in. While these pests typically live outside in damp areas like underneath of mulch piles, leaf piles, landscaping ties, plant pots or newspapers, they can also be found living inside homes. Earwigs can enter inside on their own when the weather outside becomes too unforgiving, or they can be accidentally introduced via objects from the outside that were brought in. Most people fear earwigs, not because they are dangerous, but because of the common urban legend that is associated with them. Legend has it that the earwigs crawl into the ears of sleeping people in order to burrow into their brains and lay their eggs. Luckily this legend is completely false, and while annoying to have living in your home, they pose no real threats. To help prevent these nuisance pests from making their way into your Arnold home we suggest the following prevention tips.
Check items that have been kept outside for signs of earwigs before bringing them in.
Remove piles of leaves, grass and other unnecessary organic material from your property.
Make sure that gaps found around windows and doors are sealed or caulked appropriately.
Seal any cracks or crevices that are found in your home’s foundation or exterior walls; make sure to place door sweeps underneath of all exterior doors.
Use dehumidifiers or fans in high-humidity areas like basements and bathrooms to reduce their humidity levels.
