The largest group of insects by species is the beetle with roughly a fourth of all insects belonging to it. These small bugs can infest residential and commercial properties alike.

Identifying Beetles

The most commonly found beetles are pantry pests or store-product pests. They feed on foods stores and take up residence in pantries, cabinets, and store areas with easy access to food.

  • Beetles range from 1/100 inch to over 7 inches (titan beetles)
  • Brown to black in color with some varieties carrying red, yellow,  orange, and green markings
  • Ladybugs and fireflies are classified as beetles
  • Winged and wingless

Beetle appetites are as diverse as their species. Some feed on food items like cereals, nuts, grains, pasta, and stored dry products. Others devour seeming odds ‘n ends like tin or aluminum foil, prescription drugs, laxative teas, book bindings and more. A beetle can lead to noteworthy property damage and health issues.

Fun Fact

Most beetles are not pests. The small number that are will be found mainly on plant material or food and processed products. Signs of infestation include visibly seeing beetles crawling on surfaces or flying. Beetles classified as pests are commonly found in pantries, cabinets, and in the kitchen area of the home.
