How do I get rid of beetles that are invading my kitchen?

The beetles are reddish brown and black.

The first step to eliminating unwanted pests is to keep the infested area clean. Make sure no food is left out and that all surfaces are cleaned often. Next, apply an insect pesticide barrier around the entire perimeter of your house. This will keep all bugs outside where they belong.

You can visit your local hardware store for Ortho Home Protect Maxx. This product is known to kill most beetle types and comes with a money back guarantee. I recently had problems with similar beetles and it cured the problem fast for a very cheap price. Most stores sell this for around ten dollars.

What a lot of people don't realize about most insects like beetles is that breathing is their Achilles Heel. On the floor around the perimeter of your entire kitchen, sprinkle a small mound of talc powder. As the beetles breath through pores on their sides, when they walk through it, their pores will clog and suffocation ensues.

Sounds like a type of asian beetle. The best way is to have an exterminator spray your kitchen, anything bought at the store will probably not work.

This type of bug probably feeds on open water or food. Make sure to keep your kitchen extra clean. Wipe the counters down thoroughly after every use and keep water and food well covered. Running a dehumidifier will take added moisture out of the air. Seal cracks coming into your home and removing any decomposition around your home.
