At Garrie Pest Control, our exterminators are sharing their top tips on how to get rid of beetles and keep them out of your home for good.
Get Rid of Beetles in the House
If you already are dealing with ground beetles or Asian lady beetles, there are several things you can try to do to get them out of your home. You can use a vacuum to physically remove the beetles. When using this method, always use a vacuum with a bag. When cleaning out the vacuum, remove the bag outdoors, secure it, and dispose of. Cleaning out the vacuum indoors risks the chance of re-introducing the beetles into your home. To keep beetles out, it’s important to learn how to make your home impenetrable to the pests in the first place.
