Carpet Beetles

The Carpet Beetle is one of the most common beetles found in the UK year-round – no matter the season or the weather! If your home has an infestation of Carpet Beetles, this can be very distressing as the presence of their larvae can result in infestations growing in wooden floorboards or carpets. Additionally, your home is an ideal food source for carpet beetles as they feed on furniture and clothing and enjoy warm environments. Because they enjoy the warmth, they are commonly found in bedrooms and lofts.

How to Identify a Carpet Beetle

Adult Carpet Beetles are easy to identify because they have patterned black and white scales all over their bodies, helping them stand out in your garden or property. Carpet Beetle larvae is hairy in appearance and can grow to a surprising size of 4-5mm in length.

Carpet Beetles are most commonly found between April and June. It is during this time of year that Carpet Beetles tend to enter houses in search of a warm safe place to lay their eggs. The thought of Carpet Beetles laying eggs in your home is not a pleasant one. Thankfully, Pest Control Birmingham have pest control experts ready to rid your property of Carpet Beetles completely.

How to Identify a Deathwatch Beetle

Deathwatch Beetles sound scary, don’t they? The Deathwatch Beetle can be identified by its prominent dark red/brown colour. Deathwatch Beetles lay their eggs in tricky to reach surfaces such as cracks and crevices. Deathwatch Beetles love living in oak and other wood areas. If you discover the larvae of Deathwatch Beetles in or around your property, this can be particularly harmful to your premises as they tend to tunnel through wood and destroy your property from the inside out, often over the period of many years.

Infestations of Flour Beetles

Flour beetles are most commonly discovered in food processing plants where grain is distributed. The discovery of flour beetles in the food industry can jeopardise the success of a business and, therefore, it is critical businesses manage their own pest control.

However, flour beetles are not just found in commercial spaces, they can also be found in domestic households and, by living of food, they can grow into large infestations that can be very distressing.

Biscuit Beetles

Biscuit beetles are most commonly found in food preparation businesses, such as restaurants and food processing and storage businesses. Biscuit beetles are highly skilled at getting into food packaging and food items that are stored but not completely sealed. Biscuit beetles particularly enjoy eating cereals and grains.

Beetles of all species are not only an unhygienic addition to your property, they also damage furniture and lawns and landscapes. Some beetles even attack the roots of grass – killing your lawn. Or they damage trees by eating the leaves. Depending on the type of beetle present in your home, it may need to be removed before it causes any further damage.
