How to Prevent Click Beetles

The best way to avoid encounters of the clicking kind starts with eliminating opportunities for click beetles and other non-threatening but annoying insects to enter your home. Sealing or caulking all cracks and crevices around your foundation and around windows, doors and other entryways will discourage click beetles from entering your home. Turning off exterior lights near doors when not needed can reduce the number of click beetles drawn to lights at night.

Take charge of household pests and those insects that just wander in from time to time, by contacting a professional pest control company, like Truly Nolen to schedule a free pest inspection.
