Beetles are common household pests that can be difficult to get rid of. If you have a beetle infestation on your hands, you need to call a professional to help. At Family Home Pest Control, we offer Portland beetle control to help you get rid of these pesky insects.
The most common beetle that invades homes is the cigarette beetle. These small, reddish-brown beetles are about the size of a pinhead. They can fit into very small spaces and often invade homes in large numbers. They feed on a wide variety of materials, including paper, cardboard, wool, fur, and leather. They also feed on certain foods, such as grains, seeds, nuts, and dried fruits. Cigarette beetles are known to damage books, clothing, and other items.
Another common household beetle is the drugstore beetle. These small, oval-shaped beetles are about the size of a grain of rice. They are usually dark brown or black, but they may also be a reddish-brown color. Drugstore beetles are often found in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, where they feed on grains, seeds, and dried fruits. They also feed on certain types of candy, pet food, and even pharmaceutical drugs.
If you notice beetles in your home, it's important to have them removed as soon as possible. They can cause significant damage to your property and spread harmful bacteria. For example, the drugstore beetle can carry the bacteria that causes tuberculosis. If you are bitten by a beetle, you should speak to your doctor to find out if you need to be tested for TB.

How to Prevent Beetles from Invading Your Home
While it's impossible to completely eliminate all beetles from your home, there are steps you can take to prevent them from invading. You can keep beetles out of your home by keeping your kitchen and bathroom clean, sealing any cracks or holes in your home, and storing food properly.
Keeping your kitchen clean and tidy can help prevent drugstore beetles from invading your home. Store all food in tight containers, and make sure to clean up any crumbs or spills right away.
Beetles can also enter your home through cracks and holes. Make sure to seal up any gaps around windows, doorways, and electrical outlets. If you have any gaps in your exterior walls, such as where your drywall meets your windows, you should caulk them. You can also install tight-fitting screens on your windows to prevent beetles from getting inside.
