We have been battling with drugstore beetles for few months already. We have brought in exterminators but these are mainly located in our wooden hardwood floors (as we have gaps in the hardwood floor). We are losing our mind. Please help us.
So in this case, we would recommend just one product: FS MP AEROSOL
This would be the case for a few reasons.
First, its oil based. This means it can kill all stages of insects. It will also penetrate wood and with one application, you should be able to knock down the activity dramatically.
Most all aerosols and even liquids are water based. They can’t do this and so the result is more beetles will be emerging since the other sprays can’t kill the pupae (which FS MP will kill) and if they’re in the wood, there is no chance of ending the issue.
Second, its entirely possible you have a wood beetle. If you look at the pictures below, you can see they are all similar. And in general, DRUGSTORE BEETLES will be most likely found in pantries, cabinets and other areas where food or something is stored.
But WOOD BORERS thrive in hardwood floors and after the larvae get their fill, they’ll pupate and emerge resulting in what you’re seeing.
Plus wood borers would be thriving in the sub flooring located under the hardwoods and once they come out from there, have found it easier to crawl out from the gaps in your flooring.
Regardless of which you have, the FS MP will kill them all and why its needed. Our guess is your service company is not applying a good oil based spray and so the problem has continued. Get the FS MP applied to all cracks, gaps and crevices you can find in the flooring and you will see a dramatic reduction in the activity.
This short video explains why FS MP is so special.

As you can see, FS MP is easy to use and as an oil base, what you need no matter what species of beetle you actually have active.
