Beetles – Pest Control

Hide beetle and Carpet beetle are a common pest in Edinburgh houses. They usually are found in kitchens, where the beetles feed on food crumbs. Beetles live and breed in dark areas, such as under cupboards and appliances. It is important to clean up any food debris and remove pet food when your pets have finished eating.

Adult Hide beetles are 5-12mm long and oval shaped. The larvae can be up to 14mm long and look like a small centipede.

Carpet beetles are 2-4mm long, and have a brown body with yellow or white mottled marks.

Approved insecticides are the best way to completely get rid of beetles in your house. Our professional exterminators will need to carry out 2 treatments.
