Carpet beetles are among the most difficult pests to control due to their ability to feed in obscure places and to disperse widely throughout a home. Carpet beetles feed in a way unique in that they feed on one general section of a carpet or garment rather than the typical spotted feeding pattern of a moth. The first steps of the removal of carpet beetles include:

  • Elimination accumulations of lint, hair, dead insects and other debris that may serve as a food source.

  • Regular and thorough cleaning of of rugs, upholstered furniture , and closets.

  • Removal of food stains.

  • Proper control and storage of closets. Cluster increases the likelihood of infestation.
