As fall returns and temperatures begin to drop, a wide array of wildlife begins to search for scarce food and warm shelter. Often, these critters find both resources in our homes, which is great for them, but not for us.
One particular pest that can cause chaos this time of year is Asian beetles. These ladybugs can be seriously inconvenient if they manage to get inside your property, which is why – as with most pest problems – it’s better to prevent the issue rather than fix it.
Here, Double G Pest Control takes a closer look at Asian beetles and how they can cause problems in properties… If you do find yourself facing an invasion and need help getting rid of these troublesome insects, you can call Double G Pest Control to sort the situation quickly and effectively.
How to recognize and eradicate Asian beetles
Although Asian beetles can be great for gardens, helping to keep away other pests like aphids, issues can arise when they get into homes. If you do happen to find ladybugs inside, they are likely to be the Asian variety as our native ladybugs are usually, which prefer to stay outdoors all year round. These invasive Asian beetles are usually orange instead of red, and have a ‘W’ or ‘M’ pattern to the dots on their backs. What’s more, they can bite or discharge a foul-smelling liquid when they feel threatened, which can stain walls and furniture and even trigger allergies.
With Asian beetles, it’s best to try to prevent invasions before they occur. The best way to do this is to thoroughly inspect and seal all the windows, doors, chimneys, vents and other cracks and crevices in your home (you may want to seek professional pest control aid to complete this time-consuming task!).
When getting rid of Asian beetles, it’s recommended to use gloves to protect against bites and spraying liquid, and to avoid spraying harsh chemicals indoors without proper knowledge and equipment. One way to eradicate the beetles is to use a HEPA filter vacuum, or you can try insect light traps. After removal, thoroughly clean the areas where the beetles have been.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed trying to keep the pests at bay or be disgusted at the thought of dealing with them. If this is the case and you are in need of a professional, reliable pest control service, look no further than Double G Pest Control.
