Dealing with Carpet Beetle problems

What are Carpet Beetles and how serious a problem are they?

Adult Carpet beetles are oval shaped and are between 1 to 4 mm in length and covered in barbed hairs. . How Serious Are Carpet Beetles?

Most carpet beetle damage results from larvae eating holes into natural fibre items like wool, silk, feathers, dead insects, and leather. These immature pests also have bristly hairs that can irritate skin.

When carpet beetles mature into adults, they feed on pollen instead of fabric items. Adults are mostly a nuisance because they are attracted to light. However, the presence of carpet beetles indoors usually suggests that their eggs and larvae are somewhere in the house.

Carpet beetle infestations tend to go unnoticed for long periods of time, allowing them to cause severe damage to bedding, clothes, carpets, and upholstered furniture. Identifying Adults
