Fox Pest Control’s Long Island Beetle Exterminator Service

beetle exterminator service

PWith 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 Long Island 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 Long Island homeowners. If you have a ladybugboxelder 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 on Long Island.

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.

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.

Are pesticides illegal?

Pesticides that are reviewed and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not illegal as long as they are used according to the label instructions.

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 ON LONG ISLAND?

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.
