Understanding the importance of efficient carpet beetle management is crucial in preserving the condition and aesthetics of your residential and commercial spaces.

That's why Pestforce is dedicated to providing you with expert solutions to manage and eliminate carpet beetle infestations effectively.

Understanding Your Adversary - Carpet Beetles and Their Hazards

In managing carpet beetle infestations, comprehending your adversary is key. Carpet beetles are small, oval-shaped insects that can go unnoticed due to their size. They primarily feed on natural fibres, including wool, silk, felt, and fur, potentially ruining clothing, furniture, and carpets.

The hazards posed by carpet beetles include:

  • Fabric Damage: The larvae of carpet beetles chew through fabric, causing holes and ruining valuable items.
  • Allergic Reactions: Some people are allergic to the tiny hairs on carpet beetle larvae, which can cause skin irritation and respiratory problems.
  • Spread and Infestation: Carpet beetles can spread quickly from one source of food to another, leading to widespread infestation if not managed promptly.

Prompt action is essential to prevent extensive damage and additional costs.

Identifying Signs of a Carpet Beetle Infestation

Detecting early signs of a carpet beetle infestation is crucial for timely action. Be on the lookout for:

  • Larvae, which are small and hairy, often found on or near affected materials.
  • Adult beetles, which are small, round, and typically brown or black.
  • Shed skins from larvae and faecal pellets in or around infested items.
  • Irregular holes in natural fabrics, an indication of feeding larvae.

Conduct a thorough inspection of your property, focusing on closets, drawers, and areas where natural fibres are stored.
