Earwig Prevention Tips in Highland, MD

Earwigs are a species of insect that are drawn to areas of moisture and decomposing organic matter. If you are finding earwigs in large numbers either inside or outside of your Highland home there is a good chance that there is a build-up of excess moisture somewhere.

Other reasons that homeowners find these insects in their home are because earwigs enter homes and other structures to overwinter, or they move inside when the weather outside becomes too hot and dry.

No matter what the reason is for their presence one thing is for certain, these nuisance pests need to be prevented; there is no reason that your home needs to become a sanctuary for earwigs!

To help prevent an earwig infestation, make sure that you inspect your property's exterior walls and foundation, sealing any cracks or crevices that are found. All vents should have mesh covers over them, and spaces found around utilities entering into your home should be filled in. Use dehumidifiers, vents, or fans in humid areas like basements and bathrooms.

It is also a good idea to inspect plants, newspapers, and boxes for earwigs before bringing them indoors. To rid your home of earwigs or to prevent a future infestation, contact the professionals at American Pest to implement one of our year-round pest control programs at your Highland home!
