Pest of the Month – Earwigs

Earwig Control in Bakersfield, Tehachapi, Kern CountyEarwigs aren’t harmful to humans, but they can be a pest to your home and garden. They can damage your vegetation by feeding on seedlings and it’s easy for them to go unnoticed. Since they are attracted to light you may also find them around your porch or patio around this time of year. They love to occupy moist areas like the foundation around your home and around decaying vegetation. To keep these pests out, clean and groom these moist areas. Earwigs can easily make their way into your home. Once inside, they will seek refuge in spots such as the garage where there is more moisture for them. If you’re noticing them in great numbers call Banks Pest Control at (661) 323-7858 to help you control the problem.
