Identify Your Pest >>

Dedicated gardeners get their flowers and vegetables started indoors in early spring, and by the time frost warnings are over, they're ready to plant them outside. The last thing they want to see happen to these young plants they've nurtured for weeks is damage caused by earwigs.

It's inevitable that people who garden every day will come across these pests, and they've probably embarked on pest control methods to get rid of them through the years. Sometimes their own pest management works, and sometimes it doesn't. The only way to truly guarantee that earwigs will be removed - and leave those precious early plants alone - is to hire a professional pest service like Abell Pest Control to eradicate the insects.


Still, it doesn't hurt to be well-versed in pest removal before earwigs or other garden insects have a field day ruining your plants. Making regular inspections is a good idea to catch the damage in an early stage - nipping it in the bud, so to speak.

The tip-off that significant damage has been done to your garden is a series of telltale signs - holes in leaves, tunnels in fruit and damage to ornamental plants. If it's too big a problem for you to handle, let the professionals provide the treatment that will get earwigs out of your garden and let your plants thrive.

Keep an eye out for earwigs

Earwigs aren't a threat to human health, and they eat other bugs that may plague your garden. But you don't want to leave any food outside after dining al fresco on the deck or delaying cleanup after a barbecue. Earwigs like human food as much as they like other bugs, so any organic waste in your outdoor spaces will draw the bugs into your gardening territory.

Not that you'd necessarily know they're there. Earwigs are nocturnal and they hide during the day. They can be found in piles of yard debris or inside tree trunks. They aren't loners either, preferring to be part of a large earwig community.

In spite of their close association with the garden, earwigs may also find their way into your home, especially if you have been out working on your plants for any length of time. They may hitch a ride into your house on your gardening clothes, on cut flowers or patio cushions and from a laundry basket of freshly dried clothes. Inspecting carefully before entering the house can limit their access inside.
