If you ever encounter one, you can call Pest Control Fresno services and they will make sure to exterminate the insects from your living space.

Acorn Weevil

These kinds of weevils are easy to recognize because of their long snout like that of an elephant. They usually feed on tree barks and nuts like acorns or on plant seeds through their snout. They are brown in color and have brownish-black markings on their bodies. They reside in tree barks.

Blister Beetle

These beetles are venomous and harmful. They do not bite. Rather they release a chemical that is very painful if it comes in contact with human skin, leaving a blister through which its name is derived. Blister beetles are black in color, elongated bodies, and have red legs. These beetles usually eat leaves and flowers. 

California Root Borer Beetle

Having a reddish-brown color, these beetles are known to be root residents where they feed on rotten roots or tree bark hence their name is derived from this particular characteristic. They are found in forests but also in gardens where they damage the roots of fruit trees. Each leg has three well-defined spikes. 

Calligraphy Beetle

They are very beautiful to look at as they have a base of multiple colors over which the black markings look like calligraphy. The base colors range from red, orange, yellow, and green. They use their wings to fly and they are mostly in round shape. They eat plant tissues. 

Click Beetle

This type of beetle is harmless to people. The body is elongated and dark in color from brown to black. They make a click sound in an attempt to escape if they feel threatened. They are very thin and feed on corn and wheat crops. They move really slowly.

Darkling Beetle

This beetle has many species of its own types. They are all dark in color, mostly black. They live under stones, sandy dunes, and deserts. They eat crops and plant decay. Even though all the types of darkling beetles have wings, darkling beetles do not fly and their wings are mostly kept shut to keep moisture from evaporation.

Golden Tortoise Beetle

Their visuals save them from getting killed. They are humped and round in shape. Their metallic gold color makes them visually pleasing. Interestingly enough, they can change color into brown as well. They are found in gardens and they feed on sweet potato vine.
