Carpet Beetles are most damaging in the larvae stage. They feed on dry animal and plant products along with fibers containing wool, silk, hair, bristles, fur, and feathers. Synthetic items are resistant but fiber blends can also be damaged.
“CARPET BEETLES ARE AMONG THE MOST DIFFICULT TO CONTROL PESTS BECAUSE OF THEIR ABILITY TO FIND FOOD SOURCES IN OBSCURE PLACES, AND THEY TEND TO DISPERSE AND COVER LARGE AREAS IN A BUILDING.” – UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
Carpet Beetle's habitats include bird nests, rodents, insects, spiders, wasps nests, pollen or cut flowers. They will use the animals, other pests, or items as carriers into your home. It is common when treating for carpet beetles to need to address one of these other pest issues at the same time.
Once introduced into your home, carpet beetles are most frequently found in closets, drawers, and upholstered furniture. Their presence is usually noted from their shed skin, fecal pellets, and larvae.
Carpet Beetle control requires a united effort between home owner and pest control professional. Complete housekeeping including frequent dusting and vacuuming will help keep these beetles controlled. If you find you have an infestation, washing and drying or having items dry cleaned will assist in solving this issue. Store clothing and other materials in tightly sealed containers.
Your pest control professional can provide an inspection to identify the source of your issue and professional treatment to eliminate the infestation for a long term solution.
