Ants, termites, and roaches are easily identifiable as pests by just about anyone. There are certain creepy crawlies, however, that require a much more nuanced perspective. Earwigs resemble something out of a horror flick, but as atypical as they are, they are a predominant pest in many northern climates. They also require a specialist perspective to ensure total earwig extermination. This is why an expert exterminator in New York City can ensure total assessment, elimination, and prevention of earwigs.
My Private Exterminator Inc. is your premier solution for earwig extermination in Brooklyn. We have the tools and experience to identify, eliminate, and ensure earwigs are no longer a threat to your home or business.
Earwigs are small roach-like insects that feature pincers on the front and a roach-like appearance towards the abdomen and head. While they can look startling to the unfamiliar, much of the earwig’s menacing appearance is just that: for show. The name “earwig” comes from an age-old myth that they would burrow into the ears of unsuspecting people and tunnel into their brains. Not only is this patently false, but earwigs pose more of a threat to plants or vegetation than they do to people.
Earwigs are often present in piles of decayed vegetation or mulch. Homeowners will find that earwigs infest their homes using these areas of rubbish to reproduce and feed. Removal of tree clippings and decayed leaves sometimes keeps earwigs from becoming a worsening threat, but more often than not, a more comprehensive solution is required.
Preventing an Earwig Problem
Once you identify the presence of earwigs, it’s important to keep the following tips in mind to prevent them from infesting your home or garden.
- Remove Excess Mulch or Foliage- Leaf piles or heaps of mulch are breeding ground for earwigs. Keep them away from entry points of your home to discourage earwigs from making entry.
- Minimize Moisture- Earwigs thrive on moist and dark places. Piles of laundry, wet towels, and other substances of this nature should be removed to keep earwigs away.
- Close Cracks- Whether it’s a break in the foundation or a gap in a window sill, earwigs can squeeze through the tightest spaces. Sealing these spots will make it harder for earwigs to get inside.
While these are fantastic preventative solutions, they aren’t the best solution. Your best bet is choosing an experienced Brooklyn earwig exterminator in Brooklyn.
