Frequently Asked Questions

The cost varies significantly depending on the type of beetle, type of treatment, and extent of the infestation. Most seasonal pest control - which is all that is needed for most types of beetles, can be performed monthly, bimonthly, or quarterly, and tends to cost a minimal amount each month - typically starting around $40 to $75 per month for smaller homes. Larger infestations, like an extensive carpet beetle population, may be more. It is best to contact local pest control to find out their prices. 

Beetles are one of the few pests that pose minimal danger to humans. All insects have the potential to carry bacteria with them, but this is less common with beetles than other scavenger pests, like roaches. Blister beetles, Longhorn beetles, and stag beetles are all capable of biting humans and causing pain, but these beetles are rare biters and are not known to cause any permanent damage except if someone has an exceedingly rare allergic reaction.

Though they may look similar, neither stink bugs nor cockroaches are a type of beetle.

 It depends on the type of treatment, but typically, no. If ingested or consumed in high doses, the insecticides used for beetles, and other insects, could be dangerous. But what pest control companies use is a heavily diluted pesticide spray that also becomes essentially harmless once it dries, which occurs in a matter of a few minutes. Though it is never advised to lick or consume pesticides, the vast majority are considered to be "safer than table salt" for humans and pets.
