Fox Pest Control’s Lexington Beetle Exterminator Service

Beetles showing up in or around your Lexington area home can be unsettling. Controlling beetles, especially before their visit becomes a full-fledged beetle infestation, is important. You shouldn’t have to share  your Lexington 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.

Signs of a Beetle Infestation

You might already know you have a beetle problem, but here are a few of the most common signs of a beetle infestation in Lexington.

Sightings

Keep a weather-eye out for large clumps of beetles gathered on the sides of houses, cars, or trees — usually in the fall.

Activity

Look for carpet fibers that have been eaten away.

Dead beetles

Watch for dead, worm-like grubs in food storage containers.

What You Need to Know About Beetles

  • There are more than 350,000 known beetle species in the world — probably not that many in Lexington, nevertheless. That’s more than all other animal and plant species combined. No wonder they’re a problem! Some common varieties 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 can find carpet beetle infestations 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 the fabric and the moisture attract beetles.
  • Fill in cracks in raw wood around your house, so post beetles don’t get inside and ruin the structure of your home. 
  • 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 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.

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 in Lexington?

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.

Door to door sales, which I don't usually appreciate, but I happened to be in the market for pest control. The saleslady was informative, instead of pushy. They had trucks in the area and could get to me the same day, which was a big plus". Michael was our tech. He showed up on time was knowledgeableplesant and made sure to explain all he was doing and ask if there was anything else he could do at the time. I only got my first treatment a few days ago so I can only speak to service at this time. Based on first impressions I would recommend!"
