How To Get Rid of Carpet beetles and Fabric Pests

What do Carpet beetles infestations look like?

Carpet Beetles are very small beetles. Warm and dry conditions are ideal for their development. Usually it is the adult beetles that are noticed first, gathering around skirting boards and windows. This is an indication of the presence of an established infestation.

Carpet beetles maggots thrive in areas where there is no disturbance, such as beneath carpets, around skirting boards and in wardrobes. Bird and rodent nests, animal remains and even dead insects are frequently responsible for infestations.

Getting rid of Carpet beetles

Advice: If identified, all carpet beetle maggots and eggs should be hoovered. Special attention should be paid to corners, baseboards, shelves, and other areas where lint aggregates. After cleaning, the vacuum cleaner bag should be disposed of. All infested small items such as clothing should be cleaned or disposed of.

To prevent risks of re-infestation, an established Carpet beetles infestation should only be treated by a trained pest controler.
