Beetle Control in London
There are thousands of beetle species in the UK, but only a few of these species are regarded as a pest in London.
Carpet beetles in London
The most common of the beetle pests affecting London residents is the carpet beetle also known as the woolly bear in its larvae stage.
The varied carpet beetle is usually 3mm long with white/brown and yellowish patterns like scaled on the body.
The varied carpet beetle is regarded as a severe household pest and causes damage to carpets, rugs, furniture and clothing and causes more significant issues to museum collections.
The carpet beetle has a relatively long life stage of between 1-3 years so that the damage they can cause during this time is significant.
If you have a suspected carpet beetle infestation, we would be happy to provide a free site inspection of the premises so that we can give you an accurate proposal and quotation dependent on the source and extent of the infestation.
Carpet beetles are innocuous by nature and are often found during the moving of furniture. If you have a specimen and not sure if it is carpet beetle, please send us a photo, and we will identify it for you.
Treatment for Carpet beetle usually requires a targeted residual application of carpeted areas alongside dry powder application of affected furniture.
Stored product pests
The biscuit beetle
Stored product pests include the biscuit beetle, Flour beetle, Grain beetle and Larder beetle and are usually brought into the kitchen through packaged food products and grains.
They can penetrate into plastic bags and cardboard and may go unnoticed until it is too late.
The biscuit beetle can survive for up to 8 days without a food source and has no defined season, so this is another factor for the spread of this species. If a Biscuit beetle infestation is identified in the kitchen, it is recommended that all infested foodstuff be thrown away before a professional treatment.
As part of our beetle control, we will remove all food items from the cupboards so that we can inspect and residually treat the cupboards.
If you have a beetle species and are not sure what you need to do, please send us a photo, and we will provide you with advice and a recommendation for control.
