Thanks John
I do not if you know anything about carpet beetles but last winter I noticed those larvaes here and there I googled on them and turned out they are carpenter beetles .
I didn't know how to get rid off them all I did is just vaccum.
Now this spring I see a lot if them sitting by the windows not sure if those that " grew up " in our house and now ready to fly away or new ones looking for new spot to lay eggs.
We have 2 bird nest right under the porch but when I made some calls to get rid off those I was told it's against the law to remove they can come only after egged hatched and birds migrate.
The reason I wanted to remove those bird nests is because according to my search bird best attract those carpenter beetles.
Any idea how to deal with carpenter beetles ?
I also thought I had cockroaches but when I try to catch it turned to be Beetle as well maybe woodbearing beetle looks brown and size of adult cockroach .
Thanks,
