We all love being able to call Boise home! It’s an amazing place to live with fun things to do such as visiting the Old Idaho Penitentiary, the World center for Bird of Prey and hiking Camels Back Park. Unfortunately, earwigs also love calling Boise home as well. Earwigs have a nasty habit of destroying gardens and will often venture inside the house as well. No one wants bugs invading their personal space, which makes Boise Earwig Control very important.
Contrary to the old wives tale, earwigs do not crawl in through your ear to your brain while you are sleeping. That being said, you still don’t want them invading your home. They don’t spread diseases or bite like some other types of insects, but they can pinch with their pincers when disturbed. Earwigs are brown and can be up to an inch in length. Their most identifiable characteristic is the pincer at the back of their abdomen. Earwigs are attracted to food, water, light and shelter. This can cause them to come into homes through cracks and crevices.
The first step to keep earwigs from entering your home, is sealing any cracks or crevices used to enter the home. Also, make sure to remove any piles of debris or firewood from up against your house. If you have areas of humidity in the home, particularly the basement, use a dehumidifier.
If you are having trouble with Boise Earwig Control, contact Get Lost Pest Control right away! They have two methods that they use to get rid of earwigs in your house and around your property.

Once activated with water, this granule will kill earwigs when they walk across it.
