There are many annoying beetles in the San Antonio area. While most of them are relatively harmless, some can do damage or be a nuisance in your home. Common beetles around here are carpet beetles, black beetles, June beetles, and lady beetles, as well as about 100 more types of beetles! It’s a good idea to avoid pests in your San Antonio home and beetles are no exception. If you are struggling with beetles, professional pest control can be your answer.
Problems Beetles Cause
Most beetles are harmless to humans although some can bite. Others leave stains or smells in your home. Some, like carpet beetles, can do damage to fibers and upholstery. However, the biggest problem with having beetles in your home is it is an indication that you have a breach that is allowing them in. If beetles can get in, so can other more harmful pests. Additionally, beetles are food for other pests, so if you have beetles you may be attracting the pests that eat them!
One of the best things you can do to keep beetles from swarming your home is to keep outdoor lights turned off at night. Beetles, like June beetles, are attracted to light. It’s hard not to let beetles in when they are swarming your entry area. You can also take the following preventative measures around your home:
- Repairing ripped, torn, or damaged screens on windows and doors.
- Regularly remove cobwebs and spider webs from around your home to reduce the attraction of other pests.
- Caulk or insulate small holes and cracks around your home, including around doors and windows.
- Install door sweeps on your garage door and other exterior doors.
