Beetle Control

Which insect is part of the largest number of species? THE BEETLE! Yep, that’s right! Beetles make up close to 25% of the world's known species. Beetles belong to the order Coleoptera. They are characterized as “sheathed wings” for their protective outer layer that surrounds the softer wings and abdominal area. Four of the most common household beetles are: Carpet Beetles, Pantry Beetles, Japanese Beetles and Powder Post Beetles. Despite their hideous appearance, they can serve as an effective pesticide because they are known to consume plant-sucking insects that harm crops. Thus most beetles are beneficial to humans. While most beetles serve a purpose in life, there are some that are genuinely pestiferous. Most of these pestiferous beetles are foreign and insidious species that have no enemies to sustain their population.

How to Get Rid of Beetles

Beetle control products come in two different categories: indoor and outdoor use. The beetle control strategy we suggest will be based on which type of beetle infestation you are facing. At Pest Mall, we are well prepared for any beetle problem you might be facing, so there is no need to worry. Just give us a call and we’ll walk you through it.

Beetle Control Products

  • Pheromone Traps
    With beetle traps you can lure beetles in and they’ll never come out.
  • Powder/Dust Pesticides
    These are dry formulation of contact insecticides. Powder (wett-able) and Dust insecticides can be used for a wider range of spots including gardens, indoor crack/crevices, and other areas.
  • Liquid Pesticides
    Liquid insecticides is a great way to fight off grubs (beetle larvae), however it is not the recommended way of managing a beetle infestation.
  • Granular Pesticides
    Granule insecticides are for lawn and garden use. A spreader is recommended to cover infected areas more thoroughly.

Due to the overwhelming number of beetle species in the world, it’s no walk in the park when trying to get rid of beetles. Beetle control is very difficult due to the exponential increase in their species population. This is highly owed to our efficient means of travel and of globalization. Perhaps the single most effective thing you can do to help control beetles on your property and in your neighborhood is to get rid of them yourself using our professional pest control supplies. Beetles within residential properties can cause some serious trouble, even psychological impairment. It’s important to act quickly and as soon as possible. Take matter into your own hands so you won’t have to deal with beetles ever again.

Q. Brooklyn beetle
I live in Brooklyn and my apartment is infested with large black beetles! Ok, maybe infested isn't the right word as I've only seen a handful of them since I moved in a month ago, but still! They are about an inch long, all shiny black, and fast as hell! They are defiantly not cockroaches (but I do have them too). I've scoured the internet to try and figure out what they are, but no luck. I've also looked for some sort of beetle repellent or trap, but so far I'm coming up empty handed. Do you have any suggestions? I have two cats, so something pet safe is a must. I would really prefer to not go the powder route as I have a very thorough cleaning lady and I have a feeling I'll be going through that stuff like crazy. I have roach traps and roach gel all over my apartment (pet safe ones on the floor and regular ones the ceiling and in my kitchen cabinets). Will those work on the beetles as well? Any info you could provide me with would be extremely appreciated. I hate hate hate bugs and I'm having trouble sleeping at night! I'm afraid something is going to crawl into my ear and lay eggs in my brain, haha! HELP!

It is very hard to control beetles, but any liquid insectide with a long residual time would be good to control them.

I would recommend Demand CS because it is micro-encapsulated and lasts longer than most other insecticides. This is safe to use indoors, but during the application process, keep all other people and pets out of the area.

Once the product has dried, which takes about 30 minutes, it should be safe for everyone to re-enter the room.

Q. I live in an older home and seem to have a problems with larder beetles in the early spring. What do you recommend for treatment and how often?
A.   Larder beetles in the house are pesky pests to get rid of because any animal byproduct can be affected by larder beetles. We recommend using 565 Plus XLO to use around cracks and crevices, especially paying attention to the baseboard areas. We also recommend using Delta Dust in the wall void area. If there are insects that have died in the wall void, it can attract the larder beetles to them. Since these cannot be cleaned out of the wall void, you should apply insecticides where they are located so that you can control them as they enter the structure. If you have infested food items like pet food or other storage foods that are prone to attract larder beetles, these items should be inspected and infested materials should be disposed of. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

A.   I would recommend using the Merit 75, which is a wettable powder.

We also have granules that you can put around your trees and spray it over with water so it can soak into the ground.

The Merit product is a systematic, the roots of the trees will soak up the Merit, and it is completely safe, but harmful to the insects.

A.   I'm not sure of an effective home remedy, however there are cultural approaches you can try to help control and reduce their population in that area. Cultivating the area or using insect parasitic nematodes to kill the larvae are some effective ways to control rose beetles. -Sam

Customers Testimonials
Little did I know about insecticides. So when I found pest infestation in my home, I immediately resort to buying any kind of insecticide. This proved me wrong because they were not effective. I then researched and I came across Pestmall’s Suspend sc Insecticide. The label says so much about the product so I bought it and applied it to the infested area. To my amazement, there was a quick result. Great product! Thank you Pest mall!
