Are ground beetles dangerous?
No. Having a ground beetle infestation is not like having a cockroach infestation. Ground beetles aren't drawn to rotting organic material the way roaches are. They're also not known to spread diseases like ticks, fleas and other pests. And, while some species are able to bite, they rarely do. Ground beetles are just annoying.
When ground beetles get inside West Chester homes, the biggest threat isn't the beetles themselves; it is the toxic chemicals homeowners used to get rid of the beetles. It is ill-advised to lay down chemicals to deal with a pest that is as harmless as a ground beetle.
If you only have a few beetles in your home, an infestation can be easily squashed. Literally. But when you start seeing dozens or more, it is a good idea to have the problem checked out by a licensed professional. It is likely that you have another, far more important, pest problem going on or that your home is being significantly damaged by weather conditions.
