Earwig Control in the Vancouver and Portland Metro

Earwigs, measuring about half an inch long, have sleek bodies with distinct pincers, called cerci, at their rear end, resembling tiny forceps. Despite their peculiar appearance, these little garden insects don’t harm humans. 
However, your plants aren’t as lucky! Both indoor ornamental plants and garden foliage often fall victim to earwigs, with the pests leaving behind unsightly holes and tears on leaves, petals, and stems.

Physical Characteristics of Earwigs

Earwigs have distinctive features that make them easily recognizable, like:
Earwigs typically range from 5 to 25 mm in length.


They have elongated and flattened bodies featuring reddish-brown to dark-brown coloring.


One of the most noticeable characteristics is the pair of pincers, or cerci, at the end of their abdomens. These forceps-like structures help with defense, mating, and capturing prey.

pincers (cerci):

They have a pair of long and thread-like antennae, often nearly as long as their bodies.


Some adult earwigs have wings but are not strong fliers, and most prefer to crawl.


Their bodies are segmented, with noticeable divisions between the head, thorax, and abdomen.


Preventing Earwigs

To keep earwigs from becoming unwanted guests in your home or garden, we recommend implementing these simple and effective preventive measures:
Remove Attractants: Keep your yard and garden tidy by removing debris, mulch, leaves, and other organic matter that might provide hiding spots, moisture, or food sources that attract earwigs.
Trim Vegetation: Regularly trim shrubs, bushes, and tree branches that touch or overhang your house to reduce entry points for earwigs and other pests.
Seal Entry Points: Seal cracks, gaps, and crevices around doors, windows, foundations, and utility entrances using caulking or weather stripping.
Regular Inspections: Periodically inspect indoor and outdoor areas, including garden beds, potted plants, and moist places, to detect and address any signs of earwig infestation early.
