A famous screenwriter Rod Serling (1924-1972) who produced “The Twilight Zone” also created a similar series called “Night Gallery” that we viewed in the early 1970s. One memorable part of the series was about an insect referred to as an earwig that finds its way into the main character’s ear. It burrows itself into the man’s brain and emerges out the other side. The man believes his experience is over, but as the episode winds up, he discovers that the insect has laid eggs that will soon hatch to consume his grey matter. Any person who watched that episode still has bad dreams almost 50 years later and the earwig’s image was tarnished forever. Frankly, dust mites, spiders, fruit flies, bed bugs, crickets, moths, ticks and the earwig are quite capable of finding their way into someone’s ear or another bodily cavity where they can possibly lay eggs. The chance of this taking place is low because all of these insects prefer other environments to dwell! Earwigs enjoy setting up a home in rotting wood and all of the pests mentioned above will be quite ecstatic in the confines of your Heating and Air Conditioning system, especially one in need of rigorous cleaning by a qualified Heating and Air Conditioning professional. Insects are attracted to multiple things. They want darkness, some moisture, and a temperature range that often matches what humans prefer. All of these conditions are present even in spotless Heating and Air Conditioning systems which makes the next item much more crucial: A source of nourishment. An insects version of a Denny’s Grand Slam supper is hair, pet dander, skin cells, and any decaying matter. I wonder if any insects living in a home’s Heating and Air Conditioning system can recall startling cable shows. If they do, then the thought of that qualified AC professional coming their way is to them enjoy a startling Night Gallery episode.
