Types of Beetles
There are around 1.5 million different types of beetles throughout the earth – that is a staggering amount! Beetles are found in almost every kind of habitat, from freshwater to coastal habitats. They are found wherever vegetative foliage is, from trees and bark to roots, flowers, and leaves.
More than 150 different types of beetles call Missouri home. Some of the most common beetles you’re likely to encounter in and around your home include:
- Japanese Beetles
- Banded Longhorn Beetles
- Bicolored Flower Longhorn Beetles
- Big-headed Ground Beetles
- Black Caterpillar Hunters
- Click Beetles
- Clay-colored Billbugs
- Green June Beetles
- Horned Passalus Beetles
- Asian Lady Beetle
- Strawberry Seed Beetles
- Ground Beetles
- Stag Beetle
- Striped Cucumber Beetle
- Carpet Beetle
There are many reasons why beetles may enter your home or property. Most of the time, they are looking for reliable food sources or shelter due to changes in the weather. Once inside, they will find a small, dark area to inhabit. Indoors they like attics, basements, furniture, carpets, and other wood furnishings. Outdoors, beetles are seen eating plant sources such as flowers, leaves, seeds, fruit, vegetables, mulch, and nectar. Different types eat fungus, feces, and animal fibers. This means that your home or property might be the perfect place for beetles to call their home!
How to Get Rid of Beetles?
When you spot a few beetles hanging around your home, there are some simple non-chemical solutions you can try to eliminate them. Some beetles can be removed by vacuuming or another means of physical removal. (Be sure to empty your vacuum cleaner in your outdoor trashcan.)
Inspect some of the things you buy before you bring them into your house. Avoid accumulating old furniture, wood, and fabrics as these things are attractive to some species. Also, beetles love moisture, so fix leaks and clean up drainage areas to keep from attracting them.
While some preventative measures may help, these primary strategies won’t eradicate your problem if you have a beetle infestation. That’s when it is time to call in the pest control experts.
Our expert technicians at Titan Pest & Wildlife will put together a specialized beetle treatment program to ensure your beetle problem is solved. Depending on the type of beetles you have infesting your home or property, specific treatment procedures and methods will vary based on the particular diet and habitat.
