Beetles are typically active during the day and the night. They typically dwell where they are closest to their preferred food source.
Depending on the type of beetle, you can find beetles in various areas throughout your home. Cigarette beetles and saw-toothed grain beetles feed on tobacco, nuts, and fruits so they are likely to be found in the kitchen. But other beetles, like the carpet beetles, will live in carpet where food and other contaminants are present.
While most beetles are harmless, some beetles can be be destructive to your property. For instance, the carpet beetle eats natural fibers like wool, feathers, cashmere, nectar, and pollens. These beetles leave holes in your clothes, similar to moths, or eat at your carpet or rugs.
