Beetle Control

Cockroaches are one of the most adaptable and successful insects. They can infest any type of structure from homes to commercial establishments. While cockroaches are mostly a nuisance, they are capable of carrying disease-spreading pathogens and have been shown to cause allergic reactions and contribute to asthma problems. Alberta consists mainly of the American, Brown-Banded, German and Oriental Cockroaches. Other beetles such as Carpet, Ground, Flour and Larder Beetle can range from a nuisance, to damaging food, clothing, and structural wood. If you have bats around, you may also see the Bat Bug, which is a blood-sucking insect parasite that feeds primarily on the blood of bats – they look very similar to a bed bug.

How to Keep Beetles out of your Environment:

By sealing key entry points in and around the property such as gaps under doors or around pipes to the exterior, you can help to deter intruders from entering. Also seal gaps where insects can harbor – many of these insects are nocturnal and hide during the day in cracks and crevices in the walls, behind electrical sockets or around skirting boards. Keep carpets and rugs vacuumed regularly to eradicate any eggs that Carpet Beetles may have laid and use insecticidal carpet shampoos regularily for added prevention.

The most common reason any insect enters your home is in it’s search for food and water so ensure there is none available by taking the following measures:

  • Clear dirty dishes immediately
  • Clean all waste food and spillages immediately from countertops and around appliances
  • Clean food debris from under refrigerators or stoves
  • Do not leave liquids in sinks or buckets overnight
  • Remove any pet food, water and litter trays overnight
  • Keep refuse or compost in sealed bins
  • Take care of and dispose of soiled or dirty clothing
  • Store food in sealed containers or bags
