Our association with beetles go way back to the ancient times (Egyptian mummy stuff, anyone?). Although these tiny black creatures are not as spooky as portrayed, they sure can create a hell of a problem in any household. Beetles crawling all over the mattresses, carpets, and curtains are never a pleasant sight. Very similar to cockroaches, but for their shell-like wings and antennas, beetles usually infect the garden or feed on something wooden. You can even find them on your pets causing severe itching, irritation, and rashes.
Moreover, beetles can cause serious damages to furniture and cloth fabrics. Pest control solutions at Perth employ the best techniques to curb the infestation without harming the environment or the occupants of the house. Here at Eco-friendly Pest Control Perth WA, we use licensed products and unique equipment for beetle infestation management at both residential and commercial buildings.
Common Beetle Species in Australia
From the floor to the carpet to the gardens and even on animal fur, beetles can be found almost anywhere. Based on their natural habitat and dietary preferences, beetles are divided into several species. The black carpet beetles, grain beetle, powderpost beetles, flour beetles, June beetle, elm beetle, lady beetle and ground beetles are some of the most common kinds you will come across in Australia.
Beetle Infestation Hazards
Beetles usually choose areas such as agricultural fields, gardens, attics and damp corners to colonize. They thrive in bamboo, and other wooden items and fabric. A huge group of beetles can wreak storage areas, attic spaces, and fields. However, insects cause more damage than the just mere destruction of property. Beetles are carriers of many disease-causing germs that contaminate food and water. The pesky pests are responsible for allergies, rashes, skin blisters, conjunctivitis, swallowing problems, swelling, stomach ache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal ailments.
Moreover, watching a swarm of beetles roaming around the house is never a pleasing sight. A particular species of beetles called Colorado potato beetle causes severe damage to crops every year, especially to potato plants. Another type of beetle called the Death Watch Beetle can cut through wooden furniture and buildings easily. The worst part is, beetle infestation actually begins at the time of construction in most cases.
