Detroit Michigan Professional Beetle Pest Management
Some beetle species colonize to prevent extinction. Beetle colonies can have hundreds or thousands of members, all of which have important duties that must be fulfilled regularly. The most common sightings in Detroit, Michigan include the longhorn, powder post, and ground beetle species. Scientists have identified thousands of beetle species, hundreds of which are found throughout North America. Each beetle species has unique physical characteristics, but all have poor vision and four wings – two in the rear and two in the front.
Why Are Beetles Infiltrating My Home?
There are several reasons why beetles infiltrate residential and commercial buildings. One reason is related to the insect’s overwintering habits. As an overwintering pest, the beetle enters a dormant state before or after the onset of the winter season each year. To avoid spending the harsh winter outdoors, the insect infiltrates buildings in search of warm, dark, damp, and discrete shelter.
Some beetles meet the criteria to be referenced as pantry pests. The pantry pest invades homes in hopes of accessing a non-refrigerated food supply. Like the ant species, beetle species have mandibles that are utilized to fight off predators and forage for food. Since the insect does not build nests, detection is extremely difficult to detect.
Do Beetles Carry Disease?
Beetles do not transmit disease to humans or animals. The insect is considered by exterminators as a nuisance, not a health risk to humans. Longhorn, powder post, and ground beetles are thought to be harmless. However, they may put your family at risk of a foodborne illness, such as salmonella, Shigella, and E. coli. If the insect infiltrates your pantry, it will contaminate your non-perishable food through bacteria-ridden fecal matter.
What Is The Best Beetle Pest Control Solution?
Professional pest control is more effective than do-it-yourself and over-the-counter pest control. Industrial-strength pesticide formula compared to low-strength pesticide formula is more potent and capable of eradicating full-blown beetle infestations.
Does DIY Pest Control Work For Beetle Infestation?
No, a do-it-yourself pesticide is only potent enough to eradicate one or two handfuls of beetles, not a full-blown infestation. However, we do recommend DIY pest control to not taking action. Any delay will only risk a full-blown infestation even if one or two beetles are involved. The good news, beetles generally do not reproduce indoors. The insect breeds every two to four weeks when a food supply is accessible.
