Types of Beetles in Sacramento, California
Did you know that there are over 350,000 species of beetle in the world? Beetles are the largest category of insects, and they can range from harmless to destructive. Similar to other insects, beetles go through four stages of development. They hatch from eggs and then go through larva, pupa, and adult stages. As larvae, they are often mistaken for caterpillars.
The two categories of beetles that are most likely to plague your home are:
Fabric-infesting beetles - These are also known as carpet beetles. There are three types: the furniture carpet beetle, the varied carpet beetle and the black carpet beetle. The larva is what causes the damage they are known for. They are capable of destroying carpets, upholstery and clothing. You may want to check your attic for these pests, as they tend to go for undisturbed items. A female carpet beetle lays around 50 eggs a time, so this is a beetle you definitely want to keep an eye out for.
Food-product beetles - Noticing beetles in your pantry? It might be a bad sign. Beetles, along with moths, can infest nearly any type of food, including spices and chocolate. There are several types of beetles that exhibit this behavior: the warehouse beetle, the sawtoothed grain beetle, the confused flour beetle, the snout beetle and the drugstore beetle, among others. If you’ve noticed a foul taste in your pantry’s food, you may have an infestation. The best thing to do if you find an infested item is to throw it away immediately and check for any spread.
While the odd beetle in your home isn’t a big deal, if you see signs of a beetle infestation, you should not ignore it. Beetles can be destructive, and some species, such as the carpet beetle, are known to bite humans. These insects reproduce rapidly, and because of their small size, they can become entrenched in your home and are difficult to remove with out a beetle exterminator.

It can be found in furniture, clothing, paneling, vents, pantries, and, as its name implies, your carpets. These beetles can do significant damage to the fabrics in your home. Depending on the size of your infestation, this may result in thousands of dollars of damage.
