Beetle Pest Control Service

Southern California is home to a variety of beetles which prefer to feed on rotting vegetation and other refuse. Many of these species invade yard spaces, gardens and in a few cases, homes. While beetles are not toxic to humans, they can easily ruin an evening outdoors or destroy a garden. If beetles are taking over your space, we can help!

Wood Boring Beetles

Wood boring beetles are common in southern California. These beetles are similar to termites because they cause damage to wood by boring holes during their larva and adult stages. Wood boring beetles commonly infest dead trees that are later used for construction. They are also found in areas with high humidity and poor ventilation, like crawl spaces. We eliminate wood boring beetles with a low toxicity pesticide called Boracare which prevents the larva and adults from boring into the wood.

Beetle Treatment

When treating beetle infestations, we will begin the process by sending a professional, state-licensed and certified technician to inspect your property and determine what type of infestation you're experiencing. Once the source of the infestation is identified, we will customize a treatment plan based on your needs and budget. After the initial treatment, we recommend beginning a regular treatment plan to keep beetles out all year long.

Depending on your property, severity of the infestation and your budget, we offer ongoing beetle control services on a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly basis. Concerned about the use of traditional pesticides? We also offer organic beetle pest control services on a monthly basis for the chemically sensitive. If you see any beetles between regularly scheduled treatments, we will come back for free to re-treat the area.
