While the idea that earwigs burrow into a sleeping person’s ear is a myth, these insects can still be pests in one’s home or property. Earwigs are attracted to dark, damp areas, and are likely to infest bathrooms and kitchens. They also prefer living in woodwork, making primarily wood structures more likely to become infested.

These insects are also attracted to light, making them particularly problematic in well-lit areas at night, such as mulched paths around buildings or patios and decks.

The trick to controlling and eliminating an earwig population lies in getting rid of the places where they can hide. If they don’t have a dark, damp place to nest in the population will begin to dwindle, allowing for swift pest control service to eliminate them completely.
