What are Carpet Beetles?
Carpet beetles are small, oval-shaped insects that belong to the family Dermestidae. They are often confused with bed bugs or fleas, but unlike these pests, they do not bite humans or animals. Carpet beetles feed on natural fibers such as wool, silk, and cotton, as well as on pet hair, dead insects, and other organic materials.
Carpet Beetle Infestations
Carpet beetles can enter your home in several ways, such as through open windows and doors, cracks, and crevices, or even on clothing or pets. Once inside, they can lay eggs on carpets, rugs, furniture, and other natural fibers, where the larvae will hatch and start to feed.
The larvae of carpet beetles are in the most destructive stage of their life cycle. They are small, brownish, and covered in bristly hairs, and they can cause significant damage to carpets, clothing, and other materials. Infestations are often challenging to detect because carpet beetles prefer dark and hidden areas, such as under furniture or in closets.
