Beetles come in many different sizes and shapes and are known for having shell-like front wings that are very hard. In fact, there are many different types of beetles, from carpet beetles to click beetles, Asian Lady beetles, and American Spider beetles. When it comes to identifying a beetle in your home or office, you may notice a line down their back where the two front wings meet. Although beetles have wings, you’ll rarely notice them flying.

While beetles don’t spread disease, they are a nuisance in homes and businesses and they can cause damage if left untreated. If you have an issue with beetles in your home, it’s important to enlist the help from a professional. Healthy Home Termite & Pest Control has over 20 years of experience with pest control services in the metro Atlanta area.

Beetle Infestations

Many species of beetles are attracted to stored grains and packaged foods, while others feed on garden plants, wood, or fabric. You may even bring beetles into your home through potted plants, packages, furniture, or firewood, where beetles tend to hide.
Beetles may enter your home through a small crack or gap in the foundation of your home or around a door or window frame.

You may want to check for beetles in your food, fabrics, and wooden items. We also recommend following good sanitation practices and removing foods that support beetle development.

Damage of Beetles

There are three common types of beetles: fabric infesting beetles, food product beetles, and wood-destroying beetles. Depending on which type of beetle has infested your home or business, these pests can damage clothes, décor, furniture, packaged goods, and more. For these reasons, it’s incredibly important to have a professional inspect your home and provide a treatment plan that’s specific to the type of beetle that’s infested your home.
