Malden Beetle Control
Beetles are a very annoying problem when they invade homes. There are three main types of beetles that invade Massachusetts homes. Carpet beetles, June bugs and powderpost beetles are all known to invade Massachusetts homes, causing damage and headaches. It is important to identify when one of these types of beetles invades your home right away, so that they can be dealt with quickly and decisively.
Carpet beetles are among the most destructive beetles that can invade a home. Just one female carpet beetle can lay 50 to 100 eggs a day. Once these eggs hatch, they are hungry and start eating everything they can. They love to eat any kind of fibers, especially clothing and carpet fibers. An infestation of carpet beetles can cause hundreds or thousands of dollars of damage if left untreated. If you see a hole in clothing or the carpet, call a pest control expert immediately to avoid any further damage from carpet beetles.
June bugs are a much less damaging insect, but they are very bothersome when they invade a home. They seem to have a knack for flying right into people’s faces, scaring kids and aggravating pets. Once they invade a home, it is too late to control them. If a Malden homeowner experiences a June bug infestation, they need to get a pest control expert in the next spring or fall to kill the larvae of the June bugs.
Powderpost beetle infestation is the most frightening beetle infestation that can befall a Massachusetts homeowner. They get their name from the manner in which they eat through wood. The powderpost beetles eat their way through wood, tunneling holes and leaving only powder behind. They can rapidly eat through the structure of a house, and if left untreated can cause enough damage to render a home unlivable.
