How Beetles Operate
Beetles are a type of insect with six legs, two antennae, and a hard outer shell or exoskeleton. There are over 350,000 known species of beetles, the largest of which can grow up to 4 inches in length. Beetles have varying colors and markings that help them blend into their environment. Despite their small size, they can fly very well even on warm days.
Beetles typically feed on plants, leaves, wood, fruits, vegetables, and other decaying matter. During the warmer months of the year, some species will venture indoors in search of food or a place to lay eggs. This is when beetle infestations can occur if not detected and controlled quickly.
The Impact of a Beetle Infestation
When beetles invade homes and other properties they can cause extensive damage to wood and other cellulose materials due to their serious appetite for them. They also leave behind feces which can be unsightly and may contain potential allergens that could trigger asthma or allergies in humans if left unchecked. In addition to damaging wooden objects within homes, beetles may also chew through clothing items such as wool sweaters or silk fabrics.
Some species of beetles carry diseases that could potentially be spread from one person to another if bitten or scratched by a beetle during an infestation crisis. Other health risks associated with beetle infestations include respiratory issues caused by breathing in airborne fecal particles from the beetles as well as skin irritations from contact with their exoskeletons while cleaning up after them.
Not only do beetle infestations cause physical damage but they can also cause psychological distress due to the fear of further damage being done or contamination with diseases spread by the colonies of pests living in your home or property. The most effective way to remove a beetle infestation is by hiring a professional pest control company that has trained technicians who know how to identify and eliminate these pests quickly before any further damage occurs.
