Tired of sleepless nights? Sick of bugs?


Beetles come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Some, like Ladybugs and June Bugs, are relatively harmless. Others can cause harmful damage.

Beetles typically have shell-like front wings known as elytra. These front wings are often hard and appear more like a shell than wings. The beetle folds the front wings over their back wings. They are durable and waterproof, serving as protection against damage and dehydration.

Different materials attract specific types of beetles into homes and yards. Many species seek out stored grains and packaged foods, while others feed on garden plants, wood, or fabric. Homeowners may accidentally bring the pests into the house along with infested products.

The search for shelter may also bring beetles indoors. Some of these pests overwinter in homes to avoid cold weather. They may enter the house through cracks in the foundation or gaps around door and window frames. These pests can get inside by hiding in:

  • Lumber and stacked wood
  • Furniture and carpet
  • Plants, especially potted
  • Packages and boxes that get delivered

There are three basic groups of beetles that may require treatment inside our homes and businesses:

  • Fabric-infesting beetles
  • Food product beetles
  • Wood-destroying beetles


Beetles are a nuisance because of their ability to damage stored food and property. Beetles can damage a variety of things around the home including:

  • Clothes and apparel
  • Gardens
  • Home decor
  • Furniture and carpets
  • Packaged items



We recently discovered carpet beetles in a bin of beans stored in our garage and immediately reached out to the company’s customer service. To our relief, we received a prompt response assuring us that a technician would be dispatched the next morning. This wasn’t our first encounter with such pests, but the efficiency of their response was commendable. Our technician, Jay, truly exceeded our expectations. Not only was he incredibly responsive, but he also maintained excellent communication by sending us a text with his arrival time. Upon his arrival, Jay impressed us with his personable demeanor, extensive knowledge, and unwavering professionalism. He attentively listened as we explained the extent of the infestation, demonstrating a genuine concern for addressing the issue thoroughly. What truly stood out was Jay’s dedication to going above and beyond. He meticulously treated the affected areas, ensuring that every nook and cranny was thoroughly addressed. Additionally, he took the initiative to spray inside our garbage cans, leaving no chance for the beetles and their eggs to survive. Overall, our experience with Jay and the company has been nothing short of exceptional. His expertise and dedication have left us thoroughly impressed, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of a top-notch exterminator. Jay’s professionalism and meticulous approach truly set him apart, and we are grateful for his outstanding service! Note to self never store food in any garage.
