Unfortunately, beetles are the most common type of insect and are almost everywhere you turn. These pesky six-legged creatures are a group of insects that form the order Coleoptera and constitute nearly 40% of all described insects. Beetles are by far the largest order of insects, although scientists have estimated that there could be up to eight million species of beetles.

How to Identify Beetles
Although there are many different types of beetles, they get identified by their hardened, shell-like bodies with lines running down their backs. Beetles come in various shapes and sizes, and despite their appearance, a beetle does not have a shell. Beetles are characterized by their hard exoskeleton and make a definite “crunch” when squashed. Additionally, you can identify a beetle if you see wings and six legs, and most possess mandibles. You can expect to find these little creatures lurking in many places around your home. They are prone to in and round rugs, clothing, leather, cracks, crevices, baseboards, kitchen pantries, and more. Beetles also enjoy human and animal hair, dead insects, and lint. As disgusting as it sounds, they found where this matter collects.
Why Do I Have Beetles in my Home?Many different types of beetles can enter your home for various reasons. Some types of beetles are attracted to light, while others come from being hidden in infested areas or in infested items that enter your home. They thrive in tight spaces where you find dust, dirt, hair, and lint.
Beetle Prevention Tips
There are a few ways to prevent beetles from entering your home, but they’re not always successful. Sealing all entry points is the first step in beetle prevention. Keeping cracks, and crevices around doors, windows, and other entry points is essential to blocking out those beetles. Keeping a clean and sanitary home is another way to prevent unwelcome guests because many pests, including beetles, thrive in dirty, dusty, and rotten environments. While prevention can help, it is not always a solution for pests’ entering your home. Enjoy peace of mind and call Greenix to get your free quote and start treatment before it’s too late!
