What Are Carpet Beetles?

Carpet beetles are beetles that sort of resemble bed bugs, but are black with a white pattern and orange scales. Adult carpet beetles have wings and fly during the daytime. Carpet beetles do not bite humans, but people who are allergic to them might find itchy welts that come from being exposed to the hairs of the carpet beetle larvae. 

What Do Carpet Beetles Eat?

Despite their name, carpet beetles actually prefer the outdoors. However, if your warm, inviting home is available, carpet beetles will take the opportunity to make themselves at home and munch on all the food available to it. A carpet beetle will eat anything that contains animal protein like feathers, furs, silk, wool and carpets. Their main attraction to these items is actually the food, oil and perspiration that live on these items. Carpet beetles will also eat grain-based food or even dried dairy products. 

Where Do Carpet Beetles Come From?

Carpet beetles are small enough that it is easy for them to get into your home through windows, broken screens, small cracks and crevices in your foundations and walls and doors that aren’t sealed properly. Carpet beetles have wings which makes it even easier for them to find a way into your home. They are adept at living in other animal’s nests inside of walls or even in your chimney. 

What Should I Do About Carpet Beetles?

Carpet beetles can breed rapidly and can create an established infestation in a short amount of time. As if that weren’t enough on its own, the larvae of carpet beetles shed hairs. Many people are allergic to these hairs causing breathing problems or a red raised itchy rash. If you’ve spotted carpet beetles in your home, most likely on your furniture, clothing, bedding and carpets, it’s a good idea to call in some professionals to eradicate your carpet beetle problem. Call Pest Control Experts for a great recommendation on a pest control service in your area that specializes in taking care of carpet beetles.
