Carpet beetles live mainly in gardens feeding on pollen & nectar but can enter the home via cut flowers, open doors & windows. Dark in colour & between 3mm to 5mm in length the adult beetle will lay its eggs in dark undisturbed areas such as under furnishings & skirtings.

Once the larvae have hatched they will feed on dry materials of animal origin such as wool, leather, silk & fur causing damage to carpets, rugs, clothing & wall hangings.

If left, damage to carpet may be so bad, removal of carpet & treatment of the flooring beneath may be recommended.
