About carpet beetles

The most common carpet beetle encountered is the variegated carpet beetle and the black carpet beetle.

Adult carpet beetles are 5mm long and oval shaped

Eggs are laid in undisturbed areas.

Eggs typically hatch after 14-28 days.

Larvae will feed for 9 months before pupating.

Pupating takes 2-3 weeks before emerging as an adult

Adults live for 3-5 weeks.

Larvae feed on materials of animal origin but not limited tofabrics, carpets, rugs, felts, animal carcasses, bee and wasp nests, and some stored foods.

Larvae droppings look like sand.

Adults are pollen and nectar feeders. Generally come in through an open window or brought in through flowers.

 

The general housekeeping can keep carpet beetle infestation at bay. This can be done by regular vacuuming especially in undisturbed areas, moving furniture may be necessary. Cut flowers should be inspected before being brought into the home.
