The Signs of Carpet Beetles

As the name implies, carpet beetles often infest carpets. However, once they make their way inside a property, they can begin to feast on upholstered furniture, comforters, pillows, and even clothing. These pests enter your property through open spaces such as windows and doors.

If you notice any of these signs, carpet beetles might be present in your property:

● Bare, thin areas of wool or wool blended carpets and rugs
● Shed bug larvae in hidden areas, such as under your carpets, rugs, or furniture
● Hairs falling out of deer or other trophy heads
● Significant and sudden damage to clothes, blankets, and pillows made from wool
● Tiny beetles dead on windowsills or climbing slowly on walls and curtains

What Attracts Carpet Beetles?

Carpet beetles are attracted to light. Once they find a light source, they’ll find a way to get inside. Unfortunately, most homes have many different light sources, including cracks in the doors and windows and openings around electrical ducts, vents, chimneys, and plumbing entrances.

Once inside, carpet beetles are often found near windows on drapes or windowpanes.

How Can You Get Rid of Carpet Beetles?

Although carpet beetles don’t bite humans, they can cause an itchy, bumpy rash, similar to bed bugs. Over time, carpet beetles can even trigger eye and respiratory tract infections among humans.

To get rid of carpet beetles, you may try out the following DIY solutions:

● Apply boric acid on carpets, rugs, and furniture and leave it on for about two hours. This mild insecticide can kill remaining carpet beetles and prevent larvae from developing.
● Regularly vacuum areas where you often see adult and larvae carpet beetles. You may also want to vacuum furniture and curtains.
● Wash your pillows and clothes using hot water and detergent. Carpet beetles feed on animal-based materials, such as wool, silk, feather, and leather. If your pillows and clothes are made from this material, wash them often to ensure they’re pest-free.
