Interesting Facts

For best control indoors, a Batzner Service Professional must first control earwigs outdoors. Indoor treatments should supplement outdoor treatments since earwigs do not become established indoors. During dry, hot weather, earwigs sometimes migrate indoors. They are easily controlled by a treatment in cracks and crevices, along baseboards, beneath cabinets, along door and window sills and other hiding places during the day.

How does Batzner get rid of earwigs?

A Batzner Service Professional will come to your property to identify the source of the earwigs and determine the proper treatment method.

What steps can I take to control or prevent earwigs myself?

Using Yellow outdoor lights is less attractive insects. Outdoor maintenance and upkeep such as removing leaves and grass clippings from the foundations of a building and eliminating damp conditions around the foundation will help prevent earwigs.
