Spotted Cucumber Beetle | Yellow Green In Color With Black Spots
If you find tiny black bugs crawling around your home, don't panic. If they launch themselves into the air, you might have an infestation of springtails. Although carpet beetles have the unusual ability to digest keratin, a type of protein, and might eat wool, silk, or cereals, they don't bite and won't cause structural damage to your home. If they leave a black or brown smear when you crush them, you likely have carpet beetles. Carpet beetles are common in homes though not often in large numbers, so they don't usually attract attention.
Most varieties of Beetles feed on developing crops and are harmful in garden soils. Although there are a small handful that are beneficial, they are a rare exception. Identifying which beetles are attacking your garden is the first step in controlling them.
