Beetle Treatment and Management Services near Milwaukee, WI

Beetles often damage landscaping, gardens and crops, but some will try to make their way inside your home and disrupt life as you know it. These uninvited guests might feed on natural fibers like wool, hardwoods and bamboo including furniture, other items made of wood, as well as food products. Immature June beetles attack the roots of grass, and elm leaf beetles damage trees by eating the leaves.

As beetles make up the largest order of insects, there are many types with varying problem behaviors to be aware of. Understanding common facts about beetles and learning techniques for identification and prevention can help protect your home or property against serious infestation. If you’re dealing with a beetle infestation, Safeway Pest Management near Milwaukee, WI will conduct a source inspection to identify the type and habits of your pest. Our licensed pest specialists will then move forward with an effective treatment and prevention plan to help you feel comfortable inside your home again.

General Inspection for Beetle Infestation

Beetle source inspection services are crucial in identifying the pest and the source of infestation. Learning to accurately identify the type of beetle invading your home as well as its diet and habits will go a long way in helping keep your space pest-free. Beetles belong to the insect order Coleoptera, and they make up the largest order of insects. There are more than a quarter million beetle species in the world including more than 25,000 species identified in North America alone.

Beetles come in many shapes, sizes and colors, but common characteristics include well-developed antennae, chewing mouthparts and shell-like front wings known as elytra. Though their wings are durable and waterproof, protecting against damage and dehydration, beetles are often poor fliers. Common types include Ground beetles, carpet beetles, spider beetles, drug store, powder post beetles, asian lady beetles, larder and grain beetles.
