The Facts about Carpet Beetles
Carpet beetles are tiny round insects that range from 1 to 4 mm in length and have black, white, and yellow coloration. The adult carpet beetles are good fliers and usually can be found around windows and lights.
Pollen from flowers are the adult carpet beetle’s food of choice and also feed on seeds and plants. Carpet beetle larvae will feed on animal and plant materials such as hair, grains, dead insects, process foods, fabric, and furs. The adults are usually active during the daytime and are attracted to lights while larvae hide and are usually found close to their source of food.
Spring time is when the carpet beetle may plague your home or residence as females lay 25 – 100 eggs that hatch within 2 weeks and take about 1 year to become adults. The larvae are darker brown and have a few gold hairs on their abdomens.
Carpet Beetle Infestation
Unfortunately, an infestation of carpet beetles can go unnoticed for quite some time and severe damage can be done by them as they eat through your clothes, carpets, bedding, and furniture. While you may see adult carpet beetles flying to lights and larvae crawling on surfaces, the most common sign of a carpet beetle infestation is the damage that they cause.
