Posts with the tag: "identify beetles"
There is little doubt that, if you can read this article, you've seen a beetle in your lifetime. That is, of course, assuming you didn't grow up in a bunker or on a space station. There are more than 5 million different species of beetles in the world and there is definitely no shortage of beetles here in Maui. But, what you can't tell simply by looking at a beetle is how much damage these insects can do. Let's explore more about the damages that beetles can inflict.
At Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions, we seek to empower our customers with the knowledge they need to protect themselves from all of the many pests that can invade their Hawaii homes. An important resource we use to do this is our blog. As questions come up or as new pest threats arise in our state, we use national data and research to offer an assessment of the topic and practical advice on how to address the problem posed, but this question is a tough one. Even for us. Not because beetles are especially difficult to eradicate, but because there are so many different kinds of beetles. Do you know that there are over 5 million species of beetles in the world? That's a lot of variety! And did you know that 25% of all life forms on our planet are beetles? So, we're sorry to say, there is no easy answer to this question. We really need to know what beetle we're talking about.
