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.
