There are thousands of different types of beetles roaming the earth, and many varieties can cause significant damage to your home or business if they find their way inside. Whether they are looking for a warm place to winter over, are brought in with firewood, or hitch a ride on a jacket or boot, beetles can result in bites, contaminated food, and even extensive damage to your furniture, carpets, and structure.
Some beetles, like blister beetles, stag beetles, and Longhorned beetles, are known to bite people, resulting in painful blisters. Several varieties are also attracted to human food; if you see evidence of them in your kitchen or pantry, contact our expert team immediately. And do not eat any food with which they have come into contact!
Wood-boring beetles, like the powderpost beetle, are quite common. They attack homes instead of humans and feast on furniture, cabinets, floors, doors, support beams, and other wood items. These hungry, destructive pests are more in newer homes and are common throughout the South, and they can wreak havoc.
Other beetle varieties feed on fabrics, so your furniture, carpets, clothing, curtains, and upholstery are at risk. They prefer to hide in dark places (e.g. firewood piles, potted plants, cracks, and crevices, etc.), and they multiply very rapidly. You could soon be facing a beetle infestation and extensive damage. At the first sign that beetles have made themselves at home in your residence or business, call in the pros.
