Beetles make up approximately 40% of all insect species, so it may come as no surprise that the Coachella Valley is home to many beetle varieties. Some are drawn to vegetation, some to wood, and others to grains, packaged food, and fabric – all of which they can damage. Their population increases in the summer, but they can overwinter in homes and packaging too. They can enter your home through gaps in doors and windows.
While each variety of beetle looks different, you can identify a beetle by its shell-like front wings that fold to cover delicate back wings. Because these wings serve a protective function more than anything, most species of beetle are not very good at flying compared to other insects.
Some common beetles found in California include the black carpet beetle, click beetle, weevil, lady bug, and June bug. Depending on the species, beetles can lay up to hundreds of eggs at one time, and can live for up to a year. It’s important to call a beetle control expert in the Coachella Valley as soon as you know you have an infestation.
While some beetles are harmless, others can do damage to your garden and home. Here are some tips for preventing and dealing with beetle infestations:
