Why Are Beetles Invading My Dallas Home?
Beetles are attracted to decaying wooden structures like tree stumps, firewood piles, lumber, fences, gates, decks, and porches, They are also attracted to bright lighting after dark. Beetles are overwintering pests, which means they hibernate throughout the winter season, surviving on stored fat and nutrients. If your home has an access point, it will become a beetle target.
Do Beetles Spread Diseases And Parasites?
Beetles do not transmit diseases to humans or animals. However, the insect species has been connected to foodborne illnesses associated with contaminated food. The beetles are a member of the pantry pest species, an insect that invades homes to access stored food in vulnerable packages.
Beetles travel through contaminated materials, eating along the way, picking up contaminates, which are later deposited on food products. A human will end up consuming the contaminated food, resulting in a foodborne illness. The same thing also happens when humans consume food contaminated with toxic beetle feces.
