The Central Coast of California, including San Luis Obispo and surrounding communities, have frequently seen an infestation of earwigs in gardens planted by residents.

Earwigs can be a gardener’s worst nightmare if they get out of control. They are enemies of the veggie patch, and also have a fondness for fruit and flowers, that are usually the gardener’s most prized organic possessions.

Earwigs are found most commonly in young or immature gardens that feature soft or young plants with new shoots. They are less of a problem in gardens which are more established and feature more mature plants. Some of their favorite plants include dahlias, marigolds, zinnias, corn and strawberries.

While they do not have an important role to play in the ecological balance, Earwigs are most likely to show up in your garden where they are most unwelcome. Once you have an earwig infestation, their numbers can grow out of control and cause significant plant damage. The key to getting rid of earwigs, and preventing them from returning, is to wipe out all the areas to which they would be attracted. Brezden Pest Control offers effective earwig elimination that will help your garden to recover and prosper.

Once they have been eliminated, your yard needs to be well maintained to stop them from returning in full force. You need to make sure that you do not have things lying around where they would be able to nest; such as under wood piles, pots and stones.
