That’s when it becomes a nuisance and you need to seek help.

Did You Know Beetles ...
Every fifth known living organism on the planet is a beetle, including plants. There are 350,000 species of beetles described by entomology, with thousands more still undiscovered. Some scientists estimate that there are about 3 million beetle species in existence.
Fireflies and ladybugs are also considered beetles. Some beetle species can be useful for the environment, like the ladybird beetle, which pollinates flowers and eats dead trees. Other beetles, like the Japanese beetle and the boll weevil are a real menace, destroying both crops and properties.
There are beetle species which live more than 5000 meters above the sea level. They also vary in shapes and sizes, with the biggest beetle known to man being the “Titanus Giganteus”, which grows to the astounding 17cm.
Some species of beetles glow in the dark. They can produce light because of a chemical reaction that occurs inside their bodies.
