Carpet Beetles are Stubborn!
Carpet Beetles can cause extensive damage to natural fibres, and in particular carpets and rugs, in the home environment. These beetles can be eradicated through both regular cleaning routines and the application of the products that we sell below to deal with infestations of these pests.
Given their natural resilience, perseverance is required when dealing with carpet beetles and to ensure the eggs and larvae are killed. It may take a number of months to fully eradicate a carpet beetle infestation and cleaning, vacuuming and application of carpet beetle treatments will have to be repeated over time to kill the larvae. It is the carpet beetle larvae that cause the damage - they feed for up to 70 days and an adult carpet beetle typically lays up to 100 eggs that hatch after 4 weeks, usually in crevices - hence be sure to treat skirting boards really thoroughly. Each carpet beetle larva is approximately 0.5mm long. Carpet beetles can travel some distance even after coming into contact with a potentially lethal dose of insecticide, hence the need to re-check regularly and persevere with the cleaning and treatment routine.
Carpet beetles may be found more frequently in upper rooms of warm houses where they often originate from the nests of birds such as house sparrows located under the eaves.
