How to Get Rid of Earwigs
The name of the earwig is almost as frightening as its pincers, but it’s actually based in superstition. An old European myth suggested these bugs could tunnel in through ear canals and into brain cavities while people slept, but it has no basis in reality. Despite the fact that earwigs don’t pose any threat to humans, they can produce a foul-smelling liquid as a self-defense mechanism and can pinch with their pincers when mishandled. They spend most of their time hiding in mulch and under stones, where they may originate before coming indoors. Braman has the ability to help remove earwigs in home or business sites.

Pillbug Control and Sowbug Control
Pillbugs are actually terrestrial crustaceans known for their ability to roll into a ball. They have seven pairs of legs and look heavily armored. Pillbugs will come indoors and gravitate towards moisture, so fix exclusion issues like cracks around basement windows to prevent their entry. You may also find sowbugs, which have a similar look to a pillbug, but with a pair of tail-like appendages that project outward from the rear of the body. If you want to know how to get rid of pillbugs or sowbugs that have already infested your home, start by vacuuming the area. If the problem persists, contact Braman.

How to Get Rid of Wolf Spiders
Wolf spiders look more frightening than they actually are. They are stout-bodied running spiders that grapple prey without the use of webs. Wolf spiders may enter your home or facility in search of prey and might stay once they make themselves at home. Since they tend to feed on a variety of insects, having wolf spiders may indicate other pest issues in your facility. For individual spiders, you can catch them using glue traps, but contact Braman if you think you have a much larger infestation.
Unlike most spiders, wolf spiders don’t catch their prey in webs. They use their speed and athleticism to violently hunt down smaller pests.
Contrary to popular belief, crickets don’t rub their legs together. The loud sound emitted by males is created when they rub their wings together to attract females.
