Earwig Control and Recommendations
Removing earwig habitats is very important to the control of all insects, including earwigs.
As they are attracted to lights, it might help to reduce some of the lighting outside at night.
Most insecticide treatment should be done outside with application around the building foundation, flower beds, mulch areas and turf within a couple of yards of the building, as well as in the crawl space areas of the home. Treat in a three to six foot band around the building adjacent to the foundation (perimeter treatment) to stop or limit earwigs from getting indoors. Spring and Summer are the best times to apply insecticides.
