WHERE BEETLES ARE COMMONLY FOUND
Homeowners will most often find beetles in their yards, particularly in boxelder, maple, and ash trees. These insects are often attracted to flower and vegetable gardens because of the rich, moist soil and readily available food. Other favorite outdoor spots for beetles include under logs, in piles of wood and leaves, near the garbage, in compost areas, and just below the dirt’s surface. Although beetles can also adapt to living indoors, they typically do not enter the home unless there is a food source. This source is usually an indoor flower arrangement or a pantry with access to flour, grains, and nuts. Beetles also tend to congregate in areas that humans rarely enter, such as attics, basements, and crawlspaces.
TREATMENT OF BEETLE INFESTATION
When beetles enter the home, they multiply quickly and can be difficult to eliminate. We will thoroughly inspect your home inside and out, removing potential food sources and points of entry. We will create a targeted plan that eliminates adult insects, eggs, and larvae. Although chemicals can be used to control a beetle infestation, removing infested items from the home is the most effective way to get rid of the insects.
