Common beetles found in homes include carpet beetles, pantry beetles, and wood-boring beetles.
Beetles are considered pests because they can cause damage to property, infest stored food, and some may trigger allergies or asthma.
Beetles are attracted to food sources, such as stored grains, wood, and fabrics, as well as moisture and sheltered areas for breeding.
Beetles can enter through cracks, open windows, or by hitchhiking on items brought into the home.
Signs of a beetle infestation include visible beetles, larvae, or eggs, damaged materials (wood, fabric, or food), and fecal pellets.
Beetles can damage wood, fabrics, carpets, and stored food items, leading to costly repairs or replacements.
Prevent beetle infestations by sealing entry points, maintaining cleanliness, storing food properly, and reducing excess moisture.
