Earwig Control New Plymouth

Earwigs can be difficult to prevent on your own. At Get Lost Pest Control, we eliminate earwigs by treating inside and outside areas with effective earwig control treatments that lasts up to 3 months.

We use a two-step approach for treating earwigs around your home. The first step is to spray a pest control product that the earwigs will walk across, getting the product on their bodies, which kills them. The second step is to strategically place a granule around the outside of your home. Once the granule gets wet, it will activate, and the earwigs will be killed when they walk across it. For earwig problems in the garden, we place down a granule which will not harm your plants. This granule kills the earwigs when they eat it.
