We have seen beetles on our carpets, are these a pest?
A common pest is the variegated carpet beetle; these have furry caterpillar like larvae called 'woolly bears' and they will do a lot of damage to wool carpets.
We carryout residual surface sprays to kill the insects and leave a thin film of insecticide behind to give you long lasting protection.
We run a shop and we keep seeing beetles should we be concerned?
There are a wide range of beetle species and that includes weevils who eat dried stored product, almost anything may contain some for of animal protein. Even medicines and one beetle has the name Drugstore Beetle as these will be found in chemists, we see many food retailers and processing plants with beetle infestations.
These need to be treated otherwise you may have to throw out the stock if Environmental Health were to investigate. Simple monitoring combined with good hygiene standards will be enough to keep on top of any beetles before they become a problem.
Local pest control for beetles in Maidenhead
Carpet beetles will be more widespread than carpet moths; the adult beetles look like a ladybird in size and are cream or a light yellow in colour with black and white spots on them.
The larvae are nicknamed woolly bears due to the hairs that protrude from their bodies. Some people can have an allergic reaction to these hairs and although they don't bite us you will come up with itchy lumps that look like bites.
Other types of beetles include larder beetles and grain weevils, these all infest stored foodstuffs resulting in tonnes of edible food being thrown away across the UK every year.
We usually carryout our carpet beetle treatments early in the morning as the carpets will have to be dry before its safe to return; all pets have to be kept out of the house for this period. Drying time is between four and eight hours depending on the weather and we will move your furniture to get underneath so all the carpet is treated.
