How To Identify A Beetle Infestation

Appearance - While there are more than 25,000 different beetle species in North America, all beetles share some characteristics. Regardless of species, all beetles have two hard, shell-like wings that cover more delicate wings underneath. These second wings are used for short flights.

Behavior - Seeing a lot of beetles, or a dramatic increase in the number of beetles in your house or on your property is the first means of identifying a beetle infestation. Different species of beetles feed on different sources, of which all can be troublesome. While some beetles feed on plants which can negatively affect your garden, others feed on wood, including the wood your home may be made of.

Why You Might Have Beetles

Beetles often seek out properties with a lot of vegetation for the plants themselves, as well as the pests that are attracted to the plants. They also may enter homes for shelter and food sources if they feed on wood.

Assessing the beetle population will determine if a beetle problem exists, and what species of beetle is causing the problem. This assessment will lead to customized beetle treatments to provide beetle control to your property and home.

Reasons To Treat Your Beetle Problem Immediately

Some beetles can be harmless to you and your family and also beneficial to your property by keeping other bug populations under control - until they start eating your garden or home as repayment for their good deeds. An effective beetle removal program is needed to keep your yard and home safe from overpopulation and costly beetle damage problems.

How to Get Rid of Beetles

There are over 30,000 species of beetles in the United States. Some beetles species are poisonous, some are harmless, and some are just plain annoying. But no matter the species, you don't want a beetle outbreak in your home.

Obviously, it is impossible to address all types of beetle infestations here. The good news is that most beetle infestations have similar characteristics. Below we will cover what you need to know.

How to Spot a Beetle Problem

There are a few ways you can unambiguously identify a beetle problem.

  1. You see a lot of beetles.

    The clearest sign that you have a beetle problem is seeing a lot of beetles. Beetles can vary a lot. However, they all have a shell-like bodies. Most beetles also have a line that runs down their backs. Beetles can be every size, shape, and color. But that hardened shell is what defines the family.

    Seeing lots of beetles, especially if they are the same type of beetle, is an indicator of a beetle problem. Beetle swarms can be found in rugs, clothing, furniture, carpeting, the kitchen pantry and cupboards, and along baseboards.

  2. You notice beetle damage.

    Large groups of beetles together can cause a lot of damage. Most often this damage will be found on houseplants, furniture, upholstery, or even walls and ceilings. Beetle damage is often caused by their eating habits. For example, beetles like the Japanese beetle will eat houseplants. Large groups of Japanese beetles can kill your houseplants quickly.

Beetle excrement can also cause staining along your walls and furniture. Some beetles can even be damaging to your home, as they eat wood. Wood-eating beetles can cause major structural damage to your house.

How to Get Rid of Beetles

Getting rid of beetles can be hard. When established beetles are nearly impossible to remove. Some people try natural remedies like essential oil and certain plants. However, these solutions have limited success rates.

One natural beetle control solution is diatomaceous earth (DE). This is made from crushed, fossilized algae. It is a safe product for everything except insects. You can't put diatomaceous earth everywhere, but it will work along your foundation or near houseplants.

There are a few other solutions to removing beetles from your home as well.

  1. Purchase traps.
    Beetle traps can be easily purchased from any home improvement store. These do not always work well. But they may be able to prevent beetle outbreaks. They also are ideal for beetle infestations that have not gotten out of control.
  2. Contact the professionals.

    The best beetle control solution is to contract a professional exterminator. Beetle removal experts have tools and resources unavailable to the average homeowner. They are most likely to be able to remove all existing beetles and eradicate their eggs. Both steps are essential for beetle control.
