Spider Beetle

Our remedy for spider beetle control

First, contact us. Like other stored product pests, finding the source of their presence is the key to eliminating these pests. Once discovered and eliminated, vacuuming, cleaning, and applying a material to the affected areas will control and eliminate the population.

How to Identify a Spider Beetle

Appearance

The spider beetle is about 3mm in length with pale yellow legs and a glossy reddish brown to black abdomen. They look to be in the spider family, but they’re not. They cannot fly.

Habitat

Near a dry, stored food source is most likely where you will find these pests. They can withstand harsh freezing temperatures and are very hardy.

Diet

Spider beetles eat mostly grains and dried stored products, but they also have been known to eat dried vegetables, spices, pet foods, fabric, nuts, animal skins, beans, rice, cereals, paper and wood, dead insects, dried fruit, feathers and hair. When food is not available, these insects will go into dormancy and will survive without food for numerous years, waking up when conditions improve and food sources are available again. They don’t need water.

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!

“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
