It’s invading my home
April 6, 2010
We get these beetles? in our house whenever it’s not winter. We find them mostly in the bathrooms and in the kitchen under the stove. Thanks,

Dear C. Lloyd,
Larder Beetles, Dermestes lardarius, infest stored foods, but they also do considerable damage to organic museum specimens. Larder Beetles may be found year round, and they have a cosmopolitan distribution. Search the pantry for the infestation.
