Beetles In The Home
If you have found beetles in your home, you may be wondering what brought them in? What might they be attracted to in your home? Beetles, like most other insects, are looking for food, water and shelter, which your home may provide. There are many beetle species who much prefer to live outside and may have found their way into your home accidentally, but there are a few who will have wandered inside to avail themselves of your food and warm, sheltered spaces.
What Attracts Beetles?
Beetles can come in to your home for many different reasons. They often find their way into your house due to their attraction to light. Most standard “white” lightbulbs are very captivating to several different beetle species who are drawn to both indoor and outdoor lighting.
Beetles are also attracted to food and food stuffs. Leaving uncovered food products in your home or having uncovered trash cans can attract many different kinds of insects as well as beetles.
Some beetles eat insects and will follow other insects inside your home to feed off them. Getting any pest populations under control might help deter and eliminate any beetles in your home by reducing their food source.
How To Prevent Beetles From Entering My Home
Often, figuring out what is causing beetles to be attracted to your home is the best deterrent to them coming inside. If you have a large beetle population outside your home, they may be entering due to the proximity of your home to your lawn. In this instance, the best way to prevent beetles from entering your home is to find out which plants are particularly attractive to these beetles and either remove the plants or control for these beetles outside your home.
Beetles often come inside looking for moisture. Check for any leaks or condensation build up inside your home and fix any issues. Repairing these moisture problems may work to quickly lessen or resolve any further beetle concerns.
If you are having issues with beetles, and do not know what is attracting them to your home, reach out to a pest professional who will have the familiarity and expertise to identify your issues and make a plan to resolve any beetle attraction issues and enact proper population control.
