Fox Pest Control’s Baltimore Beetle Exterminator Service

With over 350,000 species worldwide, beetles are the largest group of animals on earth. They can be very beneficial to the ecosystem, as they reduce insect populations, and are prominent decomposers. This doesn’t mean that you want them in your home. Beetles showing up in or around your Baltimore area home can be unsettling. Local exterminators know that controlling beetles, especially before their visit becomes a full-fledged beetle infestation, is important. There are a variety of common beetles that plague Baltimore homeowners. If you have a ladybug, boxelder bug, or stink bug problem, check out those pages. If you have seen clumps of beetles around your home or in your yard, call Fox Pest Control immediately to get treatment started before your home becomes overrun.

Signs of a Beetle Infestation

You might already know you have a beetle problem, but here are a few of the most common signs of a beetle infestation in Baltimore.

Sightings

Keep a weather-eye out for large clumps of beetles gathered on the sides of houses, cars, or trees — usually in the fall.

Activity

Look for carpet fibers that have been eaten away.

Dead beetles

Watch for dead, worm-like grubs in food storage containers.

What You Need to Know About Beetles

  • There are more than 350,000 known beetle species in the world — probably not that many in Baltimore, nevertheless. That’s more than all other animal and plant species combined. No wonder they’re a problem! Some common varieties you’ll find around your home include:
    • Carpet beetles
    • Billbugs
    • Rove beetles
    • Snout beetles
    • Long-horned beetles
    • Blister beetles
    • Stag beetles
  • From harmless carpet beetles to biting blister beetles, these bugs are everywhere. You can find carpet beetle infestations anywhere there’s soft, fuzzy material.
  • They also like to hide in clothes. 
  • Some beetles — such as long-horned, blister and stag beetles — do bite. 
  • Post beetles can destroy your property. These insects eat through wood, putting the structural integrity of your home at risk.

Helpful Beetle Prevention Tips: 

  • Always keep clothes off the floor, especially if they’re damp. Both the fabric and the moisture attract beetles.
  • Fill in cracks in raw wood around your house, so post beetles don’t get inside and ruin the structure of your home. 
  • Turn off exterior lights at night to avoid attracting beetles and other insects.

Beetle Control FAQ

How much damage can beetles do?

Depending on the species, some beetle larvae can eat their way through clothing. Some species will bore into wood, and others prefer stored foods like flour or grain.

What does beetle damage look like?

Wood-destroying beetles: The damage looks like small, shallow holes drilled by a power tool.

Fabric-destroying beetles: Generally speaking, they eat fabric when they are in the larval stage. The damage they cause looks like worms have chewed through the fabric.

Carpet-destroying beetles: These beetles create similar damage to carpet material.

Food-eating beetles: These munchers eat stored grain and other foods, either during the larval stage or during the adult stage. By sifting through flour or stored grains, evidence of these beetles is easy to find. You’ll either discover worm-like larvae or fully-grown adults.

Do beetles bite?

Longhorned beetles and stag beetles are a couple of types that will bite, though bites are rare and don’t cause any damage.

What if I am bit by a beetle? 

If they happen to nip at you, most beetles do not cause any real harm.

However, blister beetles — true to their name — can cause painful blisters by secreting nasty chemicals from their abdomen.

What kinds of beetles cause problems for homeowners in Baltimore?

There are many kinds of beetles that are considered pests:

Powder post beetles chew their way through wood. 
Weevils eat grain and other stored foods. 
Dermestid beetles are similar to carpet beetles, which cause damage to carpets. 
As a nuisance pest, Asian Lady beetles congregate in huge numbers and invade homes.

How many kinds of beetles are there?   

Beetles are the most prolific species in the world. There are about 350,000 known and named species of beetles. There are more known species of beetles than mammal and plant species combined.
