Beetles showing up in or around your Syracuse area home can be unsettling. Controlling beetles, especially before their visit becomes a full-fledged beetle infestation, is important. Not to mention how hard it can be to trust your carpet after finding creepy crawlies in it.You shouldn’t have to share your Syracuse home with these frustrating pests! At Fox Pest Control, we can help you get rid of beetles so you can feel as safe and comfortable as possible.
You might already know you have a beetle problem, but here are a few of the most common signs of a beetle infestation in Syracuse.
Keep a weather-eye out for large clumps of beetles gathered on the sides of houses, cars, or trees — usually in the fall.
Look for carpet fibers that have been eaten away.
Watch for dead, worm-like grubs in food storage containers.

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

First visit with Fox Pest Control. Started having minor issues with stink bugs last year and am eager to prevent that from becoming a regular thing. Jarod was knowledgable, professional and thorough. Even found a thankfully abandoned yellow jacket nest, which explains why they were a problem last year. Looking forward to seeing how the year progresses.
