Beetles are often considered to be nuisance pests, and while they may not pose a direct threat to humans or animals, they can certainly be a nuisance. There are many different species of beetles that can infest homes and businesses, but the most common in Austin are the lady beetle, carpet beetle, and boxelder bug. You may see other bugs such as Japanese beetles, wood boring beetles, and other plant pests. These pests are attracted to homes and other buildings because they offer shelter and access to food sources. Once inside, beetles can multiply quickly and become a real problem.

Common Beetle Problems

Beetles can be a problem inside and outside of the home. Some of these common beetle problems include:
