Beetles may not rank amongst rats or cockroaches as the most dreaded household pests, but beetle infestations do happen. If an area of your home is dark and prone to dampness then you may find beetles gravitating towards it. These pests pose a hygiene risk, so when beetles are found in your home they should be dealt with.

Get Rid of Beetles

One of the best ways to help make sure that beetles do not begin living in your home is to keep every nook and cranny as clean as possible. Beetles lay eggs around food, so if there are any dark or damp spaces in your house in which crumbs or other bits of food may end up being dropped then try to keep these clean on a regular basis. Check the spaces behind the refrigerator and between food cupboards to make sure that there are no problems with beetles.
If a beetle infestation has already set in, then your best option will probably be insecticides. There are many insecticides on the market in spray and powder form, dealing with different species of insect; when buying, check the descriptions carefully to ensure that they cover beetles, and it’s worthy of note that over 40% of all named insects are classified as Beetles. Make sure to follow the directions carefully when using these products around your home, especially in areas where food is kept. With food related beetles extra care should be taken as often the food may need to be disposed of and then new food placed in sealed containers for added protection. If necessary, consult a specialist, so feel free to email or call us at Pest Control Supplies for advice.

Certain precautions should always be taken when using these products. Open any windows or doors in the room to allow good flow of air, and make sure that children and pets are kept away from the area both during and immediately after usage of the pest products. Keep the pesticides to dry areas, as their effect will be compromised if used in damp places. After four days you can begin cleaning the areas in which you have used the pesticides; make sure to keep these spaces clean in the future to avoid any further problems with beetles.

Having outlined the most straightforward way to end a beetle infestation, it should be borne in mind that the best solution is to keep the beetles away in the first place. Keep your house clean and make sure that damp, dark and dirty spaces where beetles and similar pests could breed are kept to a minimum.
