Asian Beetles cluster in large groups during autumn on sunny rock outcroppings, at the base of logs, tree trunks, or the walls of buildings and homes. They can multiply quickly but they won’t damage the structure of your house. They could be more accurately described as a nuisance pest and won’t do much besides fly or crawl around your home or place of business. They can overwinter inside and appear again in the spring.
POTENTIAL ASIAN BEETLE PROBLEMS
The most common complaint we recieve about Asian Beetles is their smell. Be careful not to disturb or squash them as they can “reflex bleed,” where a yellow fluid and unpleasant odor is released from their legs. The reflex bleed is part of the Asian Beetles natural predatory defense. While this bleed carries a notable smell, be careful as it can also stain walls and fabric.
HOW WE CAN HELP WITH YOUR ASIAN BEETLE INFESTATION
Madsen Pest Management applies a perimeter barrier treatment to the yard and foliage of the yard. This treatment not only kills Asian Beetles on contact but leaves a residual in place that will continue to kill new beetles for up to one month.
