More About the Carpet Beetles

The UK is home to one of the most damaging species of carpet beetles – the varied carpet beetle. This tiny bug resembles a common ladybird but is covered with gold and grey scales which are further identified by the shape and pattern of those scales. These beetles mate outside but lay their eggs inside the house, in the safety of cracks and crevices. The adult specimens can fly and usually manage to reach the windowsills, which is a sure sign of larvae presence.

Once the eggs hatch and the larvae appear, they make their way around the house to cupboards and drawers. They are successful at that because their size is less than 1mm when hatched. The larvae are called “woolly bears” because of their short, hairy appearance. At this stage, they begin feeding and damaging carpets, fabrics of various origins, fur and feathers and even cotton materials on their way to the feather-filled cushion.

Carpet beetles, such as other textile-boring insects like the clothes moths, usually get introduced into homes through birds’ and wasps’ nests or insect burrows. Once settled, they can become quite difficult to destroy because of their long life cycle – up to two years. That is why acting as soon as you notice signs of their presence is advisable.

FAQ

Why have I got carpet beetles in my house?

Carpet beetles are pesky little pests that can find their way into your home in all sorts of ways. They might come in on a new piece of furniture or through bunches of flowers you bring inside. Once they're in, they can be challenging to get rid of.

What time of year do you see carpet beetles?

As temperatures rise in spring, so does activity among carpet beetles. These pests are most active in April, May and June when they seek locations to lay their eggs. Carpet beetles feed on pollen and nectar from flowers, but the fabric they lay their eggs on often leads to infestations indoors.

Can you completely get rid of carpet beetles?

Carpet beetle infestations cannot be eliminated with home remedies and cleaning. In most cases, getting rid of carpet beetles will require the help of a professional pest control service.

Do carpet beetles go on beds?

There is a chance that carpet beetle larvae can ruin the fabrics around your bedding, but they do not typically inhabit the space where you sleep.
