Why Are Beetles Attracted To Your Home?

There are about 25,000 to 30,000 different kinds of beetle in North America, though only a few of these species are considered pest species. Most of these beetle species prefer to live and forage outside where their natural foods and habitat exist. 

Occasionally, however, you may find beetles in your home. Once established inside a structure, beetles can live and remain inside their entire lives if they are not captured or killed. Any beetle that has found its way into your home is there looking for shelter, food and water. How do beetles get into your home and what attracts them to your home in the first place? 

What Food Sources Attracts Beetles To Your Home?

Due to the wide variation in beetle species, the beetles you have found in your home may be attracted to stored foods such as cereals and rice. Other beetle species may be feeding on the wood in and around your home. A few species, referred to as “fabric pests,” are attracted to natural fabrics and materials like carpets, tapestries, rugs, leather book bindings, feathers, silks and even upholstered furniture. Beetles will also be attracted to any uncovered, or poorly covered, trash cans or compost bins, especially if they contain any fruity or rancid flesh-like odors. 

Other Sources Of Attraction

Beetles are nocturnal, meaning they are active at night, and are attracted to bright lights near your windows. As a result, any open doors or cracked window is a tempting entry point to these efficient fliers. 

Most beetles want to live in warm, moist environments, so you may find beetles in your climate-controlled, cozy home if you happen to have a damp room, such as a poorly ventilated bathroom, or any leaking or dripping pipes.  

How Do I Get Rid Of Beetles In My Home?

Due to the wide range of beetle species that may have invaded your home, it can be difficult to figure out what they are eating, where they have entered your home, or even what species they are. All of these issues are paramount when trying to eliminate any beetle population in your home, and a misidentification or miscalculation can lead to months of ongoing issues and a loss of money due to improper treatments. 

If you want to make sure that you are using the correct control treatment for your specific beetle issue, call a pest professional who will have the experience, knowledge and know-how to get rid of your beetle infestation quickly and efficiently.
