The Varied Carpet Beetle

Carpet beetles, as their name implies, sometimes infest carpets. Similar to clothes moths, the pests also feed on many other items composed of wool, fur, felt, silk, feathers, skins, and leather. Such materials contain keratin, a fibrous animal protein which the larvae are able to digest. Cotton and synthetic fabrics such as polyester and rayon are rarely attacked unless blended with wool, or heavily soiled with food stains or body oils. Infestations of carpet beetles can develop undetected, causing harm to vulnerable items.

SELF HELP

Find The Source
Carpet beetles feed off a whole host of things but their favourites would be natural fibres such as wools and silks.
Wash the infested items
Once you think you have found the source wash at high temperatures over 60’C or freeze for 3 days. Extreme temperatures kill off all life stages of this pest.
DIY Insecticides
Insecticides will only work if you can locate where the infestation is and if it’s on clothing please don’t treat your garments with a chemical insecticide and then wear.
