SPIDER BEETLE TREATMENT

SPIDER BEETLE TREATMENT

Spider Beetle Treatment and Prevention Specialists for Kent and the South East

A group of beetles with globular abdomens and fairly long legs, superficially resembling small spiders, 3-4mm long.

General scavengers of all sorts of animal and vegetable debris and stored food, and frequently associated with old birds’ nests. The Golden Spider Beetle (below) is covered with golden hairs whilst the Globular Spider Beetle is a shiny, dark brown colour.

The Australian Spider Beetle is by far the commonest species. Adults may feign death when disturbed. The female lays up to 1,000 eggs, which are sticky. The fleshy larvae roll up when disturbed but when ready to pupate wander about and may get into cracks and crevices in floors or shelves.

REMEDY

Seek out and eliminate the source of infestation. Treat thoroughly with an appropriate residual insecticide. Ensure the product is labelled for stored product insect control or beetle control. Preferably use a trained pest control professional, with experience of stored product pests.
