Carpet Beetle Treatment

Small and oval shaped, the Black Carpet Beetle is a black colour with brown legs and short antennae. The adult will reach 3-5mm in length. The larvae, which are the true pests of this species, are typically longer in body length and are a reddish-brown colour. 

Carpet beetles are as common in food pantries as they are in a carpet or wardrobe. However, as the name suggests, Carpet Beetles are often prevalent in the carpet’s pile, but this is not their only habitat. Evidence of an infestation is not just the insects themselves but also the larvae which continuously molt before adulthood, leaving behind tell-tale shells and lots of destruction.
