Carpet and fur beetle control for Reading, Bracknell, Wokingham and Maidenhead
We have beetles crawling around in our kitchen, where did they come from?
Carpet and Fur beetles are found through Reading, Bracknell, Maidenhead, Slough and Berkshire, the adults spend the summer months feeding on flower pollen before coming into houses, hotels and businesses in the autumn to lay their eggs.
Larvae need a high animal protein diet and commonly occur in old birds’ nests; as a potential source of infestation All Aspects Pest Control will always remove old nests.
Damage is normally the first sign of a beetle infestation and by then it is too late, a monitoring system for valuable artefact's is the best form of protection.
Control of Carpet and Fur beetles should be achieved by removing any possible source of infestation.
Thoroughly vacuum carpets and furnishings and spray with a residual insecticide.
Desiccant dusts can also be used around cracks and crevices to deal with any larvae that are hidden.
Other types of commonly found beetles are flour beetles and weevils, larder beetles and grain beetles. All these live in dried goods such as flour and even things like dog biscuits.
Larder beetles are often found in kitchens as these live on the minute scraps of food that fall down behind units and in gaps between household appliances.
