Signs of a Beetle Problem

Damaged clothes and carpets? Here’s how you can tell you have a problem with Beetles.

When you are looking for signs of Beetles in your home or business, it often means you are looking for some type of damage to clothes, carpets, wood or foodstuff. These are the best indicators of a Beetle infestation on your property but due to hairs on the larval form of Beetles, skin irritation is also a tell tale sign that you have come in to contact with them.

Getting rid of a Beetle population is often difficult, especially when trying to address the problems at all of its life stages.

Isolation of their food stuffs and treatment of all possible alighting surfaces must be carried out. They are often found within bird nests feeding on feathers and excrement, spreading to central heating lagging and hot water pipe runs, airing cupboards, clothes, wardrobes, etc, making it easy to see why this pest can be somewhat difficult to control; unless this is undertaken by a trained professional.

Our Prokill experts are well trained in providing professional solutions to Beetle infestations in your home or business, using professional and approved methods that are best suited to the scale of the infestation and the surrounding environment.

Watch Out! Beetles will cause damage to:

  • Fur
  • Wool
  • Leather
  • Silk

Varied Carpet Beetle (Coleoptera)

Adults are shaped similar to lady birds, featuring black, yellow, and sometimes white markings on their body. They can lay eggs in batched of 20 – 100 which can hatch between 2 – 4 weeks, meaning it does not take long for a small population to get out of control.

Fur Beetle (Attagenus pellio)

The adult Fur Beetle has two distinct white markings on the wing case, and the larvae of Fur Beetle commonly attack furs, skins, woolens, etc. and stored grain.

Larder Beetle (Dermestes maculatus)

Scavenger feeding on various animal materials such as skin, feathers, animal hair and dried fish.
