Beetles in your home—what are they and how do they get inside?
There are 350,000 known beetle species in the world (with many more to be discovered!). North America is home to over 25,000 species of beetles. The most commonly spotted of these are the Carpet Beetle, June, May, Leaf, and the Lady Beetle (more commonly known as the Lady Bug).
Carpet beetles, Wood Boring, Long Horned and the Powderpost Beetles are the types of beetles most frequently encountered by homeowners. Although they differ in size, color, and shape, all beetles can be set apart from other bugs and cockroaches by their hard, shell-like wings.
