We have never had a problem with earwigs and suddenly we are being invaded by earwigs! Is anyone else having this problem with earwigs and do you have a solution? I had one crawl across my leg last night! :(

  • We get the house fumigated once a year – it really makes a difference.

  • How terrible for you,l almost die if l see one which is rare! Hope you fixed it up!

  • I’ve heard spraying lavender oil across your thresholds can keep them at bay.

  • Everyone has complained about extra bugs!

  • yeah pest control! there seems to be way more bugs around this year!

  • There has been lots of rain and maybe this has been a problem with damp?

  • Given how many you seem to have – I think I would be calling a pest controller. Also, consider looking at your garden to find if you are inadvertently providing a great breeding ground for them – I have only ever had them in the garden in cool shaded damp areas with lots of bark/woodchips. Remove the breeding grounds and the numbers drop.
