What clients are saying
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

Carpet beetles control FAQ

Q: Do carpet beetles live in beds?
A: 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.
Q: Can you see a carpet beetle egg?
A: 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.
Q: How much is it to get rid of carpet beetles?
A: 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.
Q: What time of the year do you see carpet beetles?
A: 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. A carpet beetle pupa usually emerges during the spring and summer. Adult carpet beetles search for egg-laying sites in April, May and June, while the grubs are active in October before hibernating.
Q: How does pest control get rid of carpet beetles?
A: Carpet beetles are controlled using residual pesticides sprayed on the floors and walls. Pesticides like these will kill adults and larvae immediately and have enhanced residual properties. A professional fogging machine reaches every corner of a room where carpet beetles hide.
