CARPET BEETLE CONTROL
The Varied Carpet Beetle
Bugs will find ingenious ways to infiltrate into your house including: to hitch a ride on any flowers or plants you bring into your home, through air vents, and flying through cracks or open windows.
They might also cling to pet hair, or your own clothing, in order to get inside undetected. But the little tykes might also shimmy down chimneys, or through plumbing openings, electrical conduits and vents to gain entry into your home.
Don’t let the name ‘carpet beetle’ fool you, either – they don’t just eat carpets. They’ll eat whatever is in front of them, including anything woollen, as well as pet food, pasta, flour, and breadcrumbs.
And you might also see a trail of destruction blazed through your furniture, books, photos and paper. Natural museums fear this pest over all others as it loves to feed on natural animal hair and being only the size of a pencil nib will go undetected when in small social gatherings.
