Lots of Little Beetles Could Mean a Big Mold Problem!
Alpert, Gary; Frye, Matthew
Fungus and Plaster Beetles represent a variety of different species that all feed on the same thing: fungi. In nature, these beetles live under tree bark, in leaf piles or under stones. In buildings, fungus beetles are indicators of a moisture problem, and can be a nuisance pest when dozens of beetles are observed. Controlling fungus beetles requires elimination of excess moisture.
