"Hello Banks, Bye Bye Bugs!"

Pest of the Month: Earwigs

Earwigs don’t bury themselves into people’s ears, but they are fast moving insects known for their large pincers. These appendages are only used for mating or as a defense mechanism, although they sometimes latch onto people with their pincers. These pests prefer damp places outside, but will make their way into your home if they are faced with inclement weather. Once inside your home, they will seek refuge in spots such as the garage where there is more moisture for them. Making sure that water drains away from your home and garden can help reduce the number of earwigs that appear near your home.
