The best carpet beetle treatment is to hire a professional exterminator

An infestation of carpet beetles may require the help of a pest control service. When carpet beetles infest your home, they can cause considerable damage in a short time. The larvae of the insect feed exclusively on animal-based and organic products, so your natural-fiber soft furnishings and textiles are immediately at risk. Carpet beetle larvae feed on:

  • Silk, leather, fur, cotton
  • Book bindings, canvas paintings
  • Upholstered items, natural carpeting, bedding, clothing
  • Synthetic rugs that have been affected by food/liquid spillages or grease stains

Use Boric acid powder to eliminate carpet beetles. Boric acid can kill beetles, larvae, and eggs; sprinkle generously on carpet and vacuum after two to three hours.
Do carpet beetles live in beds?
It is rare for carpet beetles to infest beds or people the same way bed bugs do. Instead, they prefer to feed on fabrics like carpet, wool and other natural materials.
Can you see a carpet beetle egg?
It is easy to distinguish carpet beetles' eggs from others because they have ledges that look like backbones. They are white and can reach up to 0.5mm long with an oval shape.

A carpet beetle exterminator typically charges between £180 to £260, including materials and tools. Most infestations require one treatment, but severe cases of persistent pests may require multiple visits.
What time of the year do you see carpet beetles?
Carpet Beetles eat only pollen and nectar from garden flowers and lay their eggs in bird's nests, felt, fabric, or fluff accumulated in buildings.
