BATTLING WITH BEETLES
When you are looking for signs of Beetles in your home or business, it often means you are looking for some type of damage to clothes, carpets, wood or foodstuff. These are very good indicators of a Beetle infestation.
Another indicator could be skin irritation which is caused by the Beetle Larvae.
DEALING WITH BEETLES
Getting rid of a Beetle population is often difficult. Isolation of their food stuffs and treatment of all potential alighting surfaces must be carried out. They are often found around areas like central heating lagging, hot water pipes, airing cupboards, stored clothing and wardrobes. Making use of trained professionals is your best course of action for eradication.
