I have problem with them in our hog barn. I have try a lot of different type of sprays and they do not seem to die. They climb the walls and start boring into the weed as a worm like stage. What can I use? Thank you, Tony
If you read through our HIDE BEETLE CONTROL article, you’ll learn about PERMETHRIN and NYLAR. These two products should be mixed together and applied to the areas where you’re seeing all this activity. The Permethrin will kill any live stages you see and the Nylar will work on the eggs thus preventing them from ever being able to fully mature. With hide beetles, it’s critical to kill their eggs if you want to get long term control.
