Our Beetle Pest Management – Free Consultations, Estimates, And Inspections!
The beetle is one of the most adaptable insect species, as it can live on both water and land. As a member of the Coleoptera order, the beetle is a eusocial insect. The insect travels and lives in colonies, which means they build nests for their young. The most common beetle sightings in Las Vegas include the powder post, ground, and longhorn, all of varying sizes and colors.
Why Is My Home Under A Beetle Threat?
Beetles are what scientists refer to as “pantry pest.” The insect species that belong to this classification infiltrate buildings to access processed food. Unfortunately, too many people are not familiar with the pantry pest. So, when their homes are infiltrated, they are left second-guessing the culprit. The good news, beetles are generally very easy to identify. With a bit of research, even the least inexperienced individual can identify the beetle fairly quickly after the first sighting.
Will My Children Be Exposed To Harmful Diseases and Parasites Related To The Beetle Infestation?
No, beetles do not transmit diseases or parasites. But, the insect can put your children at risk of beetle-related foodborne illnesses, a condition associated with the ingestion of contaminated food or water. Most beetle species ingest processed and dry food products after a home infiltration. Occupants of homes with vulnerable non-refrigerated food storage systems are at the highest risk of a foodborne illness.
Foodborne illness can be life-threatening in immunosuppressed individuals. Mild symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, stomach cramps, and vomiting. More severe symptoms include vision problems, difficulty talking, high fever, blood in urine, and dehydration.
What Is The Best Pest Management Measure For Beetle Infestations?
Consumers have two primary options when it comes to beetle extermination. These options include professional and DIY pest control. Professional is by far the most effective beetle control strategy, which includes routine visual in-home inspections, a customized treatment plan, and prevention. DIY pest control is generally limited to over-the-counter, basic pesticides and insecticides.
We believe our professional-grade pesticides, traps, insecticides, and eco-friendly treatments are by far the most effective beetle extermination option. Learn more by contacting our local office to speak to one of our beetle pest control experts.
Will Over-The-Counter Pest Control Products Impact Beetle Infestations?
OTC or low-strength pest control products may be effective in fighting a few beetles but will have little to no impact on an infestation. Our exterminators can help you determine what type of infestation you are dealing with. Data collected from visual inspections are utilized to determine the severity of a beetle infestation. We access the situation by taking note of the live beetles and nests. The higher quantity of beetles and nests equal a severer infestation, which will most likely not be impacted by OTC conventional pest control products.
How Long Will I Need To Wait For The Exterminator To Schedule The Beetle Inspection?
Our exterminators do not schedule appointments without the client’s input. We encourage our clients to get and stay involved in the process to ensure the best outcome for everyone involved. We can usually have a pest inspection service request processed within 24 to r8 hours, at which time we reach out to the client.
How Can I Avoid The Chemicals Found In Conventional Pest Control Products?
We always give our clients the option of choosing between various pesticide formulas – chemical-based, non-toxic, natural, and eco-friendly. We highly recommend non-toxic, eco-friendly, and natural pesticide formulas to our clients who are concerned about the environment. All of these options are free of chemicals.
It is important to note, chemical-based pesticides administered, handled, transported, and stored per the manufacturer’s recommendations can minimize or eliminate environmental risks.
Is Professional-Grade Extermination Service Expensive?
It is true, professional pest control is initially more expensive than OTC pesticides. However, it may be possible to save money with professional pesticides in severe cases. Professional pesticides are maximum strength formulas compared to OTC low-strength pesticides, meaning they require fewer overall treatments.
Our professional pest control includes an initial visual inspection, with an initial treatment, a secondary treatment, and last, but not least, a follow-up inspection. There is no way to determine how many DIY pesticide treatments will be required in advance. But, it is likely to be double, triple, or even quadruple compared to that of maximum strength professional pesticide.
What Is The Best Beetle Prevention Strategy To Avoid Repeat Infestations?
A beetle infestation will have a negative impact on you and your family, pets, and home. If your home was not vulnerable right from the get-go, it would have fought off the beetles, forcing them to look for other homes to target. Of course, this was not the case because beetles successfully infiltrated your home.
