Fox Pest Control’s Rhode Island Beetle Exterminator Service

Have you ever seen a beetle crawling across the room in broad daylight? It can be unsettling to say the least. It’s hard to trust your carpet after finding creepy crawlies in it, let alone feeling comfortable enough to invite people over. Nobody should have to share their home with these frustrating pests! At Fox Pest Control, we want you to feel as safe and comfortable as possible.

Signs of a Beetle Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have a beetle problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a beetle infestation in Rhode Island. 

Sightings

Large clumps or gatherings on the sides of houses, cars, or trees — usually in the fall.

Activity

Carpets with trails of eaten fibers.

Dead beetles

or wormlike grubs in food storage containers.

What You Need to Know About Beetles

  • There are over 350,000 known beetle species in the world. That’s more than all the animal and plant species combined. No wonder they’re a problem! Some common ones you’ll find around your home include:
    • Carpet beetles
    • Billbugs
    • Rove beetles
    • Snout beetles
    • Long-horned beetles
    • Blister beetles
    • Stag beetles
  • From harmless carpet beetles to biting blister beetles, these bugs are everywhere. You’ll find carpet beetles anywhere there’s soft, fuzzy material. 
  • They also like to hide in clothes. 
  • Some beetles, such as long-horned, blister and stag beetles do bite. 
  • Post beetles can destroy your property. These insects eat through wood, putting the structural integrity of your home at risk.

Helpful Beetle Prevention Tips: 

  • Always keep clothes off the floor, especially if they’re damp. Both fabric and moisture attract beetles.
  • Fill in cracks in raw wood around your house, so post beetles don’t get inside them. 
  • Turn off exterior lights at night to avoid attracting beetles and other insects.

Beetle Control FAQ

How much damage can beetles do?

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.

What does beetle damage look like?

Wood-destroying beetles: The damage looks like small, shallow holes drilled by a power tool.

Fabric-destroying beetles generally eat fabric when they are in the larval stage. The damage they cause looks like worms have chewed through the fabric. Carpet-destroying beetles create similar damage to carpet material.

Food-eating beetles 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.

Do beetles bite?

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

What if I am bit by a beetle? 

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.

What kinds of beetles cause problems for homeowners?

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.

How many kinds of beetles are there?   

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.

Rhode Island Pest Control Reviews

5 Stars

We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
