What to do if you keep finding beetles in your house.

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 in your property. Another sign would be skin irritation, as some of the larvae have hairs which can be an irritant to some people who come in 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 these pests can be somewhat difficult to control; unless 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.

  • Fur
