Pest Control


Beetles make up the largest category of insects in the world, accounting for approximately 25% of all life forms on Earth. In fact, there are more than 5 million different species of beetles.

Beetles are easily identified by their hard outer shell, which covers their wings. Their wings are exposed only during flight. A beetle’s body consists of three sections: a head, a thorax, and an abdomen. Adult beetles do not eat wood; only the beetle larvae do. When you see holes in either structural wood or furniture, it is because the larvae have already left, and you see the exit holes. This could be an indication of a nearby infestation. Generally, beetles are attracted to the same type of wood from which they were born.

Some beetles, such as the common Ladybug, are actually advantageous to have around. They are known to keep down the population of other insects, so you should not attempt to destroy them or any other beneficial beetle species.

Treating for beetles requires proper knowledge of the type of beetle species you are trying to eliminate. Wood-eating beetles, for instance, cannot be effectively treated using sprays because they are located deep within wood. If you think you may have a beetle infestation, your local pest professionals will have the knowledge, resources, and solution to the problem.

While some beetles are beneficial, others can cause significant damage to your home or business, particularly those that burrow into wood during their larval stage.
