General Facts

Why do I have masked hunters?

Masked hunters prefer dry locations like barns and sheds. If they make their way into homes, they like to hunt for food in attics, crawl spaces, under heat registers, and in cabinets. They eat bed bugs, carpet beetles, and other insects and mites, ambushing their prey, using their unique mouthparts to suck out their victims’ body fluids.

How worried should I be about masked hunters?

Masked hunters feed on other pest insects, so can be a sign of a bigger infestation. Bed bugs are irritating blood suckers, while carpet beetles can ruin clothing and cause skin irritation. To see what's really happening in your home, it's best to contact a professional pest control service as they can inflict a painful bite if mishandled.

Install or repair door and window screens, Control bed bug and carpet beetle infestations, Vacuum regularly, Keep tight lids on trash bins, Clean up spills immediately
