How To Identify Beetles

  • Beetles have a hard exoskeleton and wings, with the front pair forming a protective cover for the rear wings.
  • They range in size, color, and shape, but most have a distinctive oval or rounded body.
  • Common household beetles in South Carolina include carpet beetles, furniture beetles, and pantry beetles.
  • Signs of beetle infestations include visible damage to fabrics, wood, or food products, and the presence of small, oval-shaped beetles.
  • Beetles often enter homes through cracks or by hitching a ride on plants, textiles, or groceries.

Beetles Habits

  • Some beetles, like carpet beetles, feed on natural fibers and can damage carpets, clothing, and upholstery.
  • Pantry beetles infest food items, particularly grains, nuts, and dried goods.
  • Beetles are usually more active at night and are attracted to light.
  • They can reproduce quickly, leading to large infestations if not addressed.
  • Most beetles have a relatively short lifespan, but their ability to reproduce rapidly can make infestations persistent.

How To Prevent Beetles

  • Store food in airtight containers to prevent pantry beetle infestations.
  • Regularly vacuum and clean carpets, curtains, and upholstery to remove beetle eggs and larvae.
  • Inspect new groceries, especially dry goods, for signs of beetles before storing them.
  • Seal cracks and openings in your home to prevent beetles from entering.
  • For effective beetle control, particularly in cases of large or persistent infestations, contact Marett Pest Control for professional assessment and treatment.
