I have carrion beetles inside my house and not sure where they came from or how to get rid of them. Any ideas?
I have found them mainly in the bathroom, in the tub and sink. Also have found them on the tiled floor in the kitchen. We recently moved into the downstairs apartment, which is located in the woods.
We have never had an email or question about carrion beetles inside a house. Usually they are outside and feed on dead animals. We would first make sure that they are definitely carrion beetles. As far as treatment, a good insecticide like Demon WP should help with the ones getting into the house. It will help kill the ones coming into the house, but finding the source may be the only way to get rid of the problem for good.
