What Do Beetles Look Like?

While beetles are some of the most common insects, it’s easy to confuse them with other species. One way to tell a beetle apart from other insects is to examine the wings and wing covers. Unlike other winged insects, a beetle’s first pair of wings is hard, protecting the flying wings underneath. A beetle’s wing covers typically meet in a straight line in the middle of the beetle’s back for easy identification.

Signs of a Beetle Infestation

Seeing beetles in your home or business is one of the more obvious signs of an infestation. However, there are some other warning signs to be aware of, such as:

  • Holes in fabrics or clothes: Beetles often eat fabric, meaning if you have an infestation, you may notice holes in your rugs, clothing and furniture.
  • Finding beetle skins: Some types of beetles, like carpet beetles, shed their skin numerous times, so furry skins around your home or business may be a sign of infestation.
  • Droppings: Another sign of an infestation is the sight of brown or black beetle droppings that are the size of a grain of sand.

How to Get Rid of Beetles

Once you identify a beetle infestation, your next step is to remove these insects as soon as possible. The first step should always be to call pest control, and you can use the following tips to keep beetle bugs away while you wait for the professionals to arrive:

  • Use your vacuum to remove any visible beetles.
  • Inspect food, fabric and wood items to avoid bringing beetles into your building.
  • Ensure all entrances have a tight seal.
  • Remove food or moisture that supports beetle development.
  • Regularly clean fabrics and closets.
