About Carpet Beetles

The larvae of the carpet beetle (Anthrenus verbasci), also known as woolly bears, can cause extensive damage throughout the home as they feed on the natural fibres in carpets, curtains, clothing and fabrics. Silk skirts, natural wool suits and wool based carpets can all be ruined by this young pest.

In its larval form, the carpet beetle measures roughly 4-5 mm in length. Its body is hairy and covered in light and dark-brown stripes. Usually wider at the back than at the front, it has 3 pairs of tufts along its rear abdomen for use in self-defence.

Adults range from 1.7 mm to 3.5 mm in length. Their top side is scaled in two colours, white-brown and yellow-brown and they have developed segmented antennae.

Carpet Beetle Treatment

Carpet beetle problems can be treated relatively simply as long as the infestation is identified early enough. Abandoned birds’ nests are a common source of the problem. The pest can then make its way inside into areas such as warm linen cupboards. These can be treated with a residual insecticide which is usually very effective in conjunction with regular vacuuming, dry cleaning and airing clothing.

When treating carpet beetles we endeavour to use the most environmentally friendly products. Customers will need to vacate their property for a few hours while the treatment is carried out and any residual insecticide spray is allowed to dry.

Remember at Ecoguard Pest Solutions we always use the latest technologies and treatments available meaning they are most humane and environmentally friendly products.
